MOVE OVER LAW

Central Hastings O.P.P would like to remind drivers to adhere to is Ontario’s Move Over law. This law applies to all motorists who are approaching a police, fire or ambulance vehicle in the same direction of travel, stopped on the roadside with its lights flashing. Drivers in this situation are required to slow down and pass with caution, but if the road has multiple lanes, drivers must move over into another lane, if it can be done safely. Violating this law comes with a $400 to $1200 fine and 3 demerit points upon conviction.

Motorists need to recognize the safety concerns of officers and other emergency services as they tend to their duties on the side of the road.
