Move-Over Citations On The Rise

Move-Over citations are on the rise in Colorado after the death of a State Trooper last year. According to statistics from the department of transportation, over 2,200 drivers have been ticketed this year for failing to  comply with the Move-Over law.  That’s more than the total from 2015 and 2016 combined. State police increased enforcement of Colorado’s Move-Over law after State Trooper Cody Donahue was hit and killed earlier this year while investigating a crash along I-25. Colorado law requires drivers to move over one lane when any emergency, service or maintenance vehicles are parked on the side of a roadway. When this is not possible, drivers should slow down significantly and use extra caution.
