The State of Michigan has a “move over” law in place. Simply put, when you spot an emergency vehicle, police, fire, rescue, ambulance and road service workers ahead of you, you move over and slow down. No legalese, it’s simple, move over and slow down. The law reeks of common sense and it’s baffling to think it needs to be a law….but there you go.
