National Move Over Law Resolution Passes in U.S. Senate

TRAA celebrates today's passage of the Move Over Law Resolution (S.Res.476) in the U.S. Senate. The resolution supports the goals and ideals of Move Over Laws and urges relevant Federal and State agencies, as well as nongovernmental organizations involved in traffic incident management response, to promote the existence of and adherence to State Move Over laws. 

 

TRAA is proud of our part in assisting with several of the cosponsors and generating support for the resolution. The passage of S.Res.476 will undoubtably increase public awareness of Move Over Laws and the need for drivers to slow down and move over when they see any incident responder on the side of the road.

 

Note, "simple resolutions" are entirely within the prerogative of one chamber or the other. They do not require the approval of the other chamber or signature by the President. An almost identical resolution, H.Res.1463 passed the House last November.

 

TRAA deeply appreciates the support of every stakeholder who contributed to making the passage of this resolution possible.
