ABOVE VIDEO: The Florida Highway Patrol has released dramatic video of a crash involving a driver who slammed into the back of a trooper’s patrol car while he was pulled over on the side of the road.
Dramatic dash cam video captures a vehicle crash into the rear of a Florida Highway Patrol vehicle.
First responders perform a critical and dangerous service on the side of Florida’s highways and byways, so please move over so they can safely do their job.
It’s the law, it’s common courtesy and most importantly, it’s a lifesaver!
Florida law requires you to Move Over a lane — when you can safely do so — for stopped law enforcement, emergency, sanitation, utility service vehicles and tow trucks or wreckers.
- If you can’t move over — or when on a two-lane road — slow to a speed that is 20 mph less than the posted speed limit.
- Slow down to 5 mph when the posted speed limit is 20 mph or less.
When you fail to Move Over, you put yourself and others at risk; you could crash into a vehicle or worker.
Violating the Move Over law will result in a fine, fees, and points on your driving record. For more information, see section 316.126, Florida Statutes.
