Pennsylvania is making changes to its ‘Move Over’ Law, which are set to take effect on April 27th, 2021. The updated law will require drivers who are unable to merge into an outside lane to slow down to 20mph less than the posted limit.
Not adhering to the new law will result in a minimum of two points on your license. Additionally, there are fines ranging from $500 for a first offense, to $2,000 for a third offense. A third offense would also result in a 90-day license suspension.
Lastly, the law adds double fines for traffic violations committed in an emergency response area, and fines of up to $10,000 for injuring or killing emergency responders.
