As drivers, we tend to drive in the direction we look. This works fine as long as we are looking out our front windshields, however when we look off to the side of the roadway we may begin to drift in that direction. Usually we realize we are moving onto the shoulder, perhaps from the feeling of a rumble strip, and are able to safely steer back onto the roadway. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. There have been numerous tragic crashes involving emergency vehicles stopped on the roadside being struck by motorists. The move over law was enacted to prevent such crashes.
