"Move Over" Sign - EB I-44 E/O ROLLA

Missouri's "Move Over" Law States:

"Upon approaching a stationary emergency vehicle displaying lighted red or red and blue lights, the driver of every motor vehicle shall:

(1) Proceed with caution and yield the right-of-way, if possible with due regard to safety and traffic conditions, by making a lane change into a lane not adjacent to that of the stationary vehicle, if on a roadway having at least four lanes with not less than two lanes proceeding in the same direction as the approaching vehicle; or

(2) Proceed with due caution and reduce the speed of the vehicle, maintaining a safe speed for road conditions, if changing lanes would be unsafe or impossible."


A number of children lose their lives every year when they become hidden in the blind spots of vehicles. Be sure to get out of your vehicle and check behind it just before you back up. If there are children in the area, make sure you can see them while backing up. Check out Consumer Reports findings on just how large that blind spot is behind your vehicle.


If you were involved in an accident and unconscious, would responding emergency personnel know how to reach your family?

Consider the "ICE" (In Case of Emergency) initiative as suggested by the East Anglian Ambulance service.

The Department of Homeland Security recommends that next-of-kin details and other emergency information be kept on a "family contingency plan" sheet that can be downloaded from their site. The sheet has wallet sized cards that you can give to family members.
