THE ILLINOIS STATE POLICE IS BEEFING UP ENFORCEMENT OF “SCOTT’S LAW.” 

 

SCOTT’S LAW, ALSO KNOWN AS THE MOVE-OVER LAW, REQUIRES MOTORISTS TO CHANGE LANES IF POSSIBLE WHEN THEY SEE AN EMERGENCY VEHICLE ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. STATE POLICE ACTING DIRECTOR BRENDAN KELLY IS ADDING TWO THOUSAND HOURS OF MANPOWER TO CATCH VIOLATORS.

 

 

14 TROOPERS HAVE BEEN HIT SO FAR THIS YEAR BY VIOLATORS AND ONE DIED FROM HIS INJURIES.

 

 

TROOPERS HAVE ALREADY WRITTEN NEARLY 500 TICKETS FOR IGNORING SCOTT’S LAW THIS YEAR.
