Move Over and Give a Lane

Arkansas law enforcement officers ask that you help protect them when they have a vehicle stopped along a multi-lane divided highway.

When approaching a law enforcement vehicle with its emergency lights activated and parked along the shoulder of the road, it is the law that drivers of vehicles passing the officers move to the furthest lane of traffic away from the officer's patrol car. Watch this video and learn about the dangers Arkansas State Troopers face when stopping a vehicle along a divided highway.
