Massachusetts State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Section (CVES) was out in Worcester and Bristol Counties on Friday enforcing the state's Move Over law. The CVES stopped 82 commercial vehicles, and issued 103 citations.
The Massachusetts Move Over Law was put in place March of 2009 in order to make all roadside emergency and maintenance professionals safer on the job. The Move Over Law mandates drivers approaching a stopped emergency or maintenance vehicle with flashing lights to move over to another lane if its safe and to reduce their speed. Failure to do so could result in a fine of up to $100.
State police are asking all citizens to follow the law and to always move over.
