The Minnesota State Patrol is upping their enforcement of the Move Over Law, as a way to honor its 15 year anniversary.
Minnesota drivers are encouraged to keep their eyes open for law enforcement and emergency workers on the roads.
The Minnesota State Patrol is upping their enforcement of the move over law, as a way to honor its 15 year anniversary.
The law was established after Minnesota State Trooper Ted Foss was hit and killed by a passing vehicle during a traffic stop in 2000.
Moorhead Police says it makes their job easier and safer when drivers move over or slow down.
“We’re grateful that while we’re trying to make the roads safer that people are conscious of the safety of the officers that are also working. And that they take extra initiative to move over and give them a safe lane,” said Lt. Tory Jacobson of Moorhead Police.
In 2014, 30 State Trooper squad cars were struck while parked along the road.
