"It's just the best thing to do, move over. Even though it's technically not the law that you have to move over for everyone," said Trooper Brad Arterburn of Kentucky State Police Post 5.
In Indiana the law also includes utility service vehicles.
"Anyone with orange flashing lights, like tow trucks or service vehicles, should get the same respect. Really, drivers should get over for anyone who's stranded or parked there. It's just the safe thing to do, but it's the law for emergency and utility vehicles," Indiana State Police Cpl. Steve Didat said.
The purpose of this law is to protect the emergency and highway personnel who serve the public.
