The California Highway Patrol and Caltrans have joined together to educate the public about the Move Over or Slow Law in California and to acknowledge the installation of the “Move Over” signs throughout California.
The Move Over law, which took effect in 2007specifying law enforcement and emergency responders, was amended in 2009 to add Caltrans vehicles displaying flashing amber lights to the list of vehicles for which motorists must move over if safe to do so, or slow down.
