Effective July 1, there are two important changes to Indiana’s Move Over Law. First, motorists must reduce their vehicle’s speed to at least 10 mph under the posted speed limit if they are unable to move safely to an adjacent lane. Secondly, the updated law now also includes utility service vehicles. Under the updated law, Indiana emergency vehicles include:
Police vehicles
Ambulances
Fire trucks and rescue equipment
Highway incident-response vehicles
Highway maintenance vehicles
Utility service vehicles
Vehicle recovery equipment, including tow trucks.

Violations result in fines and suspension of license for up to two years if you cause damage to emergency equipment, injury or death to an emergency worker.

Look for other states to enact similar laws. It is important that all drivers exercise extreme caution when passing any vehicle stopped on the shoulder for any reason. Move over if possible. If not, slow it down.
Drive smart, be safe.
