I got this ticket a couple weeks ago and have to go to court about it in 2 weeks. I was driving down the road and two officers had a car pulled over on the right side of the road. No officers or other peolpe were out. They were all in the cars. I drive by in the right lane and the other officer pulls me over and gives me a ticket for failure to move over. I was not aware of this law. I was going to pay it and when I called the police station they said you had to go to court for it. Any idea on how much trouble I am in

Nope, but it is a matter of respect for their safety. It is a law in all but a few states now...Good luck, and let us know the fine

Was there anyone to your left that would have prevented you from moving over? I always try and move over but some times its just not possible. Especially if your towing.

I thought it was a courtesy but not a requirement. I admit I am guilty I just wasn't aware of the law

It is that way in Texas. The law is move your ass over, if you can't move over, slow WAY the fuck down. I think it is 25 mph minimum below the speed limit.

Use this as your excuse...Hopefully he doesn't have a rear mounted camera as well. As you stated his lights were on which normally turns their cameras on.

In GA it's a requirement to either move over a lane ( if possible ) or to reduce speed by 10, maybe 15, MPH. Alabama could have the same thing.

best i remember I could have gotten over but didn't realize that I had to. Funny thing is after they stopped me they would stop others for the same thing. I think they stopped about 4 people for this in about 10 minutes

I think police on the side of the road is more dangerous than a person doing 10 over on the highway.Everyone has to slow down and look or move over it just fucks up the flow of traffic.
