Move Over
First Responder Safety
All 50 States have "Move Over" laws to protect law enforcement officers and other first responders stopped on our Nation's roads.  Yet only 71% of the public are aware of these laws, and traffic-related incidents continue to be the number one cause of death among on-duty law enforcement officers.  

NHTSA is working to increase awareness of these life-saving "Move Over" laws and highlight the need to protect public safety professionals who place themselves at risk to protect motorists.  

A variety of infographics, flyers and brochures are available online at  https://www.trafficsafetymarketing.gov/get-materials/first-responder-safety/move-over.  Get yours now and share them with your community to raise awareness of the "Move Over" law and possibly save the life of a first responder.
