Move Over, Or Else

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is reminding motorists to move over.

New highway signs will advise drivers about Wisconsin's Move Over Law. It requires motorists to move over a lane or slow down if they see a law enforcement or emergency vehicle's flashing lights.

Officials say the new campaign protects law enforcement officers...
About a dozen die each year performing traffic stops and assisting motorists on the highway.

"This campaign will place move over signs on our highways,” says Rep. Louis Molepske, Jr. (D) Stevens Point. “Informing our motorists that Wisconsin is looking out for those who risk their lives and the families means of income everyday on the sides of our roads."

The new signs will be placed at the main entry points to Wisconsin – including Kenosha, Genoa City, Beloit, La Crosse, Superior, Hudson and on Highway 51 near Kieler.
