Ohio House Votes on Move Over Law for Trash Trucks

While the Move Over law applying to emergency workers and public vehicles went into effect in September 1999, a measure designed to require drivers to “move over” when passing trash trucks with flashing lights was approved by the Ohio House on Wednesday, 84-0.

 

Approved in October by the Senate, the bill would require drivers to proceed with caution and change to a lane away from a waste collection vehicle if traveling on a roadway with multiple lanes in the same direction. And regardless of the lane count, a driver must proceed with caution and maintain a speed safe for road, weather and traffic conditions. A driver found to violate the move-over requirement can face a minor misdemeanor moving violation charge and a fine up to $300 plus court costs.
