CROSBYTON, TX (KCBD) -

The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Troopers will be enforcing the Slow Down MOVE OVER LAW April the 18 and 19, 2018 in Crosbyton area. 

DPS would ask all motorists when they see any emergency vehicles (including any police vehicles, EMS or fire trucks), tow trucks or Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) vehicles stopped on the shoulder of the road with emergency lights activated slow down or move over. 

The law states that motorist will move over into a passing lane with multiple lanes or slow down 20 miles per hour of the posted speed limit on a two-lane roadway.

The penalty for not moving over or slowing down could be a fine of $1 up to $200 and if there is property damage the fine can be $500.  If anyone is injured as a result of someone not moving over or slowing down the person could result in being arrested.

DPS would encourage everyone to drive defensively, and not have someone injured or killed as a result of not moving over or slowing down.
