Trooper reminds of Scott’s Law

ILLINOIS (RFD) — Penalties for Illinoisans who don’t slow down and move over will be tougher starting in January. Illinois Governor JB Pritzker recently signed two new laws to make penalties harsher for violating Scott’s Law also known as the Move Over Law which requires motorists to shift over a lane to give first responders more space.

State Police trooper and Public Information Officer Josh Korando says they’ve gotten tougher because what they’ve been doing isn’t enough.

Earlier this year, Illinois State Police reported over 13-hundred violations of the law during a 19-day period. The added laws go into effect January 1, 2022.
