Move Over Law


Governor Wolf recently signed legislation enhancing and rebranding the state’s Steer Clear Law to the Move Over Law.  The law requires drivers to move over or slow down when they encounter an emergency scene, traffic stop, or properly marked disabled vehicle.  If the driver cannot move over safely, they must reduce their speed to at least 20 mph below the posted speed limit. Currently, the law requires drivers in non-adjacent lanes to reduce their speed to a careful and prudent reasonable speed. The legislation also doubles the existing fines and adds a point system to violations.  While the new law won’t take effect until April 2021, we encourage everyone to be safe and abide by the new guidelines.

Members of the Westtown-East Goshen (WEGO) Regional Police Department will be enforcing the Pennsylvania Move Over Law.
