Michigan Drivers, Be Aware Of This New Law
Michigan drivers, you'll want to be aware of this new law that will soon take effect.
According to MLive, Governor Rick Snyder signed in a new law this passed Thursday having to do with emergency vehicles. The new Michigan law states that drivers must not only move over, but also slow down "for emergency, maintenance and utility vehicles on the roads." The current law only required drivers move over a lane if possible.
This new law goes into effect within 90 days and requires drivers to slow down to ten miles below the posted speed limit when passing any stationary emergency, maintenance and utility vehicles. Be sure to follow the new law once it goes into effect; if an officer pulls you over for violating it, you can be issued a civil infraction, along with "a $400 fine, plus two points on [your] driver's license."
