Gov. Bruce Rauner joined state officials to announce a new roadway safety campaign aimed at raising awareness of Scott’s Law. That’s the law requiring motorists to move over for stopped vehicles with flashing lights.

The state law was first enacted in 2002, requiring motorists to slow down, move over and change lanes if possible to make room for stopped emergency vehicles with flashing lights. The law was expanded in January 2017 to include any vehicle with flashing hazard lights.
