State police share Move Over patrol totalsApril 24, 2019
From Local Sources
Troopers from the Indiana State Police concentrated their enforcement efforts last week on catching drivers who fail to slow down and move over for emergency vehicles.
The effort was coordinated with state police agencies from five other states — Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
With the increase in construction zones, the state police said this was an opportune time to utilize special patrols not only to find those drivers who violate the law, but to educate the public on the importance of slowing down and moving over for emergency vehicles.
Troopers concentrated efforts on all emergency vehicles, including construction vehicles, fire trucks, ambulances, police vehicles, maintenance crews, and roadside service crews.
Indiana troopers issued 115 tickets during the enforcement and 194 warnings.
