As we move into late July, the lazy, hazy days of summer have certainly arrived. But we are still right in the middle of the vacation season and that means more highway traffic throughout Ohio. It is the perfect time to remind everyone to Slow Down and Move Over for all roadside workers. Ohio’s Move Over Law requires motorists to cautiously shift over one lane — or slow down if changing lanes is not possible — when passing any vehicle with flashing lights on the side of a road. Its purpose is to protect everyone who works on our roads and everyone who travels on them. This is a very easy rule to remember, but its importance cannot be overstated. Slow Down, Move Over is a lifesaver!
