Give First Responders Room

All of us at Hendrick MINI encourage you to give police and other first responders extra room when you see them stopped in the breakdown lane for any reason. In fact, it's the law. We will explain.

Every state in America has a Move Over Law. South Carolina created the first one in 1996. Each state's Move Over Law is unique, but they all place the same general expectation on you. When you approach police officers, other public employees and motorists who are stopped on a highway, you must move over one lane. If creating that berth is impossible, then Move Over Laws typically expect you to slow down to a speed well under the limit while passing.

Breaking a Move Over Law might result in a ticket with an attached fine. Collisions caused by failing to comply with such a law carry harsher penalties in most states. Always drive safely, and familiarize yourself with the Move Over Law in every state where you drive.
