The House of Representatives has voted to expand Connecticut's so-called ``move-over law,'' now requiring drivers to move over one lane when passing road maintenance vehicles and tow trucks. Brookfield State Representative David Scribner says the bill now awaits Senate action.
Current law compels drivers to move over for emergency vehicles on the side of a highway with three or more lanes. The new legislation would include two-lane highways as well.
There is language in the proposal that states "if it's possible". Scribner says they don't want people to put their own lives in jeopardy, but to extend caution and courtesy on the road when possible.
