Shoulder Responsibility: Now It's the Law!
(Frankfort, KY) - A new law in the state of Kentucky protects police officers and other emergency workers stopped alongside the highway. The new law requires motorists to approach cautiously when an emergency vehicle is stopped ahead with its lights flashing.
Motorists must change lanes away from the emergency vehicle if they are on a multi-lane highway and can do so SAFELY. If drivers can't change lanes safely, or they are on a two-lane highway, they must slow down while maintaining a safe speed so as not to impede other traffic.
Violations can result in fines.
