Florida Highway Patrol Auxiliary - Move Over Florida, It's The Law

Be the first of your friends to like this article.

Florida law enforcement officers are serious about enforcing the Move Over Law!

On a two-lane roadway, you are required to slow to a speed that is 20 miles per hour less than the posted speed limit

  • If the speed limit is 20 miles per hour or less, you must slow down to five miles per hour.
  • If you are driving on an interstate or roadway with multiple lanes of travel in the same direction, and you approach an emergency or law enforcement vehicle parked along the roadway, you must vacate the lane closest to that vehicle as soon as it is safe to do so. If you are not able to safely move over, you must slow down to a speed of 20 MPH below the posted speed limit unless directed otherwise by a law enforcement officer.
  • Violating the move over law puts both yourself and a public safety professional at risk.
  • Violating the move over law can result in a fine and points on your license.  Click here to view the brochure.
