Expensive ticket, and ignorance is no excuse

 

 New  Traffic Law 2010 – Ticket cost $754.00   
 
GOOD  THING TO KNOW:  New Law:  If a patrol car is pulled  over to the side of the road, you have to change to the next lane (away from the stopped vehicle) or slow down  by 20 mph.  Every state except Hawaii , Maryland and D.C. has this law.  In California, the “Move-over” law became operative on January 1, 2010.
  
A  friend’s son got a ticket for this recently.  A police  car (turned out it was 2 police cars) was on the side of the road giving a ticket to someone else.  He slowed down to pass but did not move into the other lane.  The second  police car immediately pulled him over and gave him a ticket.  He had never heard of the law.  It is a fairly new law that states if any emergency vehicle is on the side of the road, if you are able, you are to move into the far lane.
   
The cost of the ticket was $754, with 3 points on your license and a mandatory court appearance. Please let everyone you know that drives know about this new law.  It is true, see details at the following web address:
