Move Over or Slow Down for Working Line Crews

Linemen dedicate long hours to ensuring affordable and reliable electricity gets to you. Georgia’s Move Over law helps drivers do their part to keep linemen safe while working near roadways. 

When you see a utility vehicle on the side of the road with its lights flashing, move over a lane to give linemen the room they need to safely complete their work.

If you don’t have an extra lane to move over, the law requires you to slow down below the posted speed limit and be prepared to stop. 

The Move Over law includes all first responders (law enforcement, fire and EMS), utility vehicles, DOT vehicles,  HERO units and wreckers stopped on the side of the road and operating in an official capacity.
