Highway Patrol to Conduct “Move Over” Campaign Friday

Posted by Lucy

PIERRE, S.D. – South Dakota Highway Patrol troopers Friday will focus on encouraging motorists to move over.
The Patrol is conducting a statewide “Move Over” campaign from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. local time Friday. The campaign is designed to educate motorists about the state’s Move over Law. The law requires drivers to:
*** Move over to the lane farthest away when approaching any vehicle on the shoulder of four lane highways or interstates that is using amber or yellow warning lights;
*** Slow down to 20 mph below the posted speed limit when approaching any vehicle on the shoulder of two lane roads or highways that is using amber or yellow warning lights;
*** Stop when approaching from any direction an emergency vehicle that is displaying red visual signals. Unless directed otherwise, proceed with caution only after making certain it is safe to do so. 
This week is Law Enforcement Memorial Week. One of the five troopers killed in the Patrol’s history was Steve Hoffman, who was killed in 1980 when he was struck by a truck while making a traffic stop on a highway near Freeman.  
Local law enforcement agencies also will be invited to participate in the enforcement project. Col. Price says troopers will enforce the law.
This is the first time the Highway Patrol has conducted a statewide “Move Over” campaign.
