What are the rules for Florida's 'move over' law? (Video)                                                         By Staff, News 13

Troopers and Florida transportation officials are reminding motorists what the laws are for moving over when there are emergency vehicles on the side of the road. FHP Sgt. David Rodriguez was run over years ago and said Wednesday that he still feels effects from the crash. "It's been six years now, and this morning when I woke up, I had to take time getting out of bed because of my injuries. So please follow the message, because it affects the victim, it affects the family and ultimately the department." Last year, 3 Road Rangers and 1 trooper were killed because drivers failed to move over, transportation officials said.

If you are unable to move over a lane for a stopped emergency or service vehicle, slow down to 20 mph below the posted speed limit. #MoveOverFL
