Posted by Hannah Lane  -  bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Drivers in Alabama will soon be required to move over or slow down when there's an emergency vehicle on the side of the road.

Starting January 1st, if you don't follow the requirement, you could get a ticket.

The Move-Over Law used to only apply to police cars, but it now includes all emergency vehicles with flashing lights.

Troopers will issue warnings through the end of the year.
