Good to see the "move over' law is doing just what it was intended on doing....making money for the towns..... if it is really for the cops... then how about they donate the fees received from the violations to a good cause?? some charity that supplies the widows and children of police officers maybe? Although, I must say..I have personally witnessed near accidents because of this law. I suggest they look at what it has caused in 5 years and see if has really helped.
