Nebraska governor signs ‘move-over’ law


Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman has signed a so-called “move-over” law meant to protect emergency workers and tow-truck drivers on busy highways.

The bill (LB92) passed Thursday in the Legislature and bars people from driving in the lane next to shoulders where emergency and nonemergency workers are present. Heineman signed the bill Wednesday.

If drivers couldn’t move over, they would have to slow down.

The law would apply to Interstate 80 and other highways with at least two lanes of traffic in the same direction.

Nebraska is 1 of 7 states without a move-over law.
