Colorado! Effective Today August 7, 2023, the move over law will now apply to all vehicles on the side of the road. That means you must move over if there is a stationary vehicle on the side of the road with emergency lights or hazards on. If you can’t move over because there isn’t a lane or other circumstances, you must slow down by at least 20 miles per hour below the speed limit. Failing to do so can result in a Class 2 misdemeanor traffic violation. Move Over laws help protect emergency responders and individuals who may be broken down on the side of the road.
