The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA’s) “Move Over, It’s The Law” Campaign is aimed at raising awareness about the importance of moving over for law enforcement officers and other roadside workers. Public safety officials risk their lives on the roads in North Carolina and across the nation everyday, and motorists need to move over when they see flashing lights.
Keeping Roadway Workers Safe
Unfortunately, only about 71 percent of the population is aware of “Move Over” laws, and traffic-related incidents are the number one killer of law enforcement officers across the country. Giving law enforcement officers and other roadside workers the room they need to work safely is everybody’s responsibility.
