change to the next lane (away from the stopped

at least 20 mph under the posted speed limit. Every

and Maryland and the D.C. has this law. In California ,

law became operative on January 1, 2010 ..

cars) was on the side

slowed down to pass but did

police car immediately pulled him

never heard of the law. It is a fairly

emergency vehicle is on the side of the road, if

to move into the far lane. The cost of the ticket was

points on his license and a mandatory court appearance.
> Please let
everyone you know who drives about this new law. It is true (see

at the following web addresses). This same law applies to tow trucks

medical emergency vehicles like ambulances on the side of the road.
