(UNDATED) – Indiana State Police troopers pulled over more than 300 drivers for failing to change lanes for emergency vehicles last week.
Troopers say an increase in construction zones made now the perfect time to target those who ignore the law.
It’s all was part of a week-long effort April 14-20 to enforce the state’s Move Over Law.
The law requires that drivers pull over or reduce speed when driving by stationary police, fire or ambulance emergency vehicles. It also applies to construction, utility service, and road maintenance cars.
The law was crafted after an ISP officer was struck and killed helping a driver in 1997.
The effort was focused on those who didn’t change lanes when an emergency vehicle was on the side of the road.
More than 300 drivers were pulled over. Of that number, 115 were given tickets.
