Changes to Minnesota’s move over law after last legislative session

The Minnesota Legislature expanded changes to Minnesota’s Ted Foss Move Over Law this year. When traveling on a road with two or more lanes, drivers must keep over one full lane away from stopped emergency vehicles with flashing lights activated.

This included emergency medical services like ambulances, fire rescue, law enforcement, maintenance, construction vehicles and tow trucks.

If a driver does not keep one full lane away the fines can exceed $100, due to endangering personnel.

Minnesota’s Ted Foss Move Over Law honors the State Patrol trooper who was killed while on the shoulder of I-90 in Winona in 2000.

The changes to Minnesota’s move over law continue or if at least one person is visibly present outside their vehicle.

Another one of the changes to Minnesota’s move over law includes stalled or disabled vehicles on a street or highway.
