Move Over Or Slow Down For Official Vehicle


Preexisting law requires a driver who is overtaking an emergency vehicle, tow vehicle, or public utility vehicle that is parked on the side of the road to reduce and maintain a safe speed. The act makes it a presumption that the following speeds are safe unless the conditions require a lower speed: 25 miles per hour if the speed limit is less than 45 miles per hour; or At least 20 miles per hour less than the posted speed limit if the speed limit is 45 miles per hour or more. The act also requires the Colorado state patrol and the department of transportation to create a campaign raising public awareness of the requirement to move over or slow down and of the dangers to stationary emergency and service vehicles. (Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
