Move Over Violation

The Georgia Move Over Law can be found in 40-6-16. The purpose of the law really stems from safety, specifically the safety of a police officer or emergency responder that it tending to a situation on the side of road, such as an accident or a motorist in need of assistance.

If you see a police officer or emergency vehicle that has its flashing lights on, you must make a lane change into a lane that is not right next to where the vehicle is.  In other words, if you see a police vehicle with its lights flashing and it is in the right shoulder, you should not be in the right most lane. Instead move over at least one lane so that there is a space in between your vehicle and the emergency vehicle.

What if it is not possible to move over from that particular lane? Let’s say there are no other lanes the left to move into or there are other vehicles occupying those lanes and you cannot get over safely. If that is the case, you must reduce the speed of your motor vehicle to a reasonable and proper speed for the existing road and traffic conditions, which speed shall be less than the posted speed limit, and be prepared to stop your automobile. In other words, slow down to the point where you can stop safely. That is the best way to try and adhere to this law.

Having a skilled and experienced Georgia Move Over Violation Attorney on your case will help you achieve a better result.

  • We help keep your driving record clean. We can negotiate with the prosecutor to amend your Move Over citation to a reduced or non-reporting violation.  This will keep it off your driving record.   In other instances, we may be able to identify defenses, mitigating circumstances or technical/procedural mistakes made by the citing officer, which could result in a dismissal of your charge.    This all depends on your particular case, so call us today at 678-895-6039 to discuss your charge.
  • We can save you money. If you simply pay your Move Over ticket and it goes on your record, your insurance company will deem you a riskier driver and use it against you by increasing your insurance premiums.  Most likely, they will increase your premiums by thousands over dollars for several years.  By keeping the ticket off your record, we will save you more money in the long run.
  • We can save you time: Whenever it is possible, we handle your case without you having to appear in court to face the prosecutor and judge. However, depending on the court and the facts of your case, your appearance may necessary or beneficial; in that event, we can still save you time because due to procedural rules, courts typically hear attorney represented cases before hearing non-represented cases, thereby drastically decreasing the amount of time you spend in court.
