NC Move Over Law

In July of 2010, North Carolina lawmakers expanded the state’s ‘move over law’ to include electric utility vehicles restoring power on the sides of roadways. The ‘move over law’ requires motorists to slow down and cautiously approach emergency vehicles with flashing lights, moving over one lane when possible. Beginning in December of 2010, the law included electric utility vehicles that are stopped, with amber lights flashing, on roadway shoulders. The expanded law now  protects electric utility workers as they work to maintain power lines or restore power in local communities and along North Carolina’s highways.
