Move over for emergency vehicles - it's the law!

Make sure you move over! The move over law was enacted in Ontario in 2003 to ensure safety for all emergency vehicle operators and updated in 2015 to include tow trucks. The law requires that motorists driving in the same direction as the stopped emergency vehicle move over to clear the adjacent lane. If you are unable to move over, you must slow down and pass with caution.
