Maryland (and Out of State) Drivers, Brush up on Your Driving Laws
Over the last several years, Maryland has changed a number of its driving laws in order to promote safer conditions for drivers using the thousands of miles of Maryland roadways. Lawmakers have paid special attention to safety regarding emergency vehicles and drivers using handheld devices.
Did you know that it is now the law in Maryland that you must move over one lane when approaching an emergency vehicle or tow truck stopped on the side of the road? Dubbed the Move Over Law, this legislation stipulates that drivers must provide a buffer lane when able so that emergency workers have space to operate. If a driver is unable to do this, the driver must slow down significantly. Failure to obey this regulation can result in a fine of $110 and a point on one’s driver’s license.
