Remember to move over for emergency vehicles

HANNIBAL | Hannibal Fire Department reminds drivers to move over for emergency vehicles working on the road shoulders. 


An emergency scene with police, fire, EMS and tow crews can be even more dangerous when inclement weather is present.


Created in 2002 and expanded in 2012, Missouri's Move Over law requires drivers to change lanes when approaching MoDOT vehicles, law enforcement vehicles and any other emergency vehicle with lights flashing. If drivers can't change lanes safely, they must slow down as they pass the emergency vehicles. A violation can result in fines and/or imprisonment.


Remember, emergency responders' safety is in each motorists hands — remember to slow down and move over for all emergency vehicles.
