State Officials Remind Motorists about Illinois’ “Move Over” Law

During the busy travel season, Illinois officials are reminding drivers about the state’s “move over” law.

The “give them distance” campaign aims to make sure drivers give any vehicle stopped along the side of the road plenty of room.

Illinois Tollway Board Chairman Bob Schillerstrom says it’s the law.

Previously the law only applied to emergency vehicles but now includes any vehicle with hazard lights flashing.
