State strengthens 'move over' law on roadways

Woosker, never had my lunch money stolen and I was not a state trooper, I was simple county sheriff that took my lunch every single day and I never wore a tie..bow or otherwise...but I do know the rest of the joke..

Happy holidays folks, time to get the car packed.

stevesk858,

I always yield to law enforcement when they are working...me getting of the way, may be the difference in you living or dieing...but I, as long as I am not breaking the law will not get out of the way of a jerk who thinks he owns the road...sorry, that is just the way I am, I have as much right as the other guy to operate my vehicle in a prudent manner following the law..
Your road rage is not my problem...

You folks are so funny and just illustrate the problems we have in our society now a days..The law always works for the other guy, but it just never works for you..all for none and none for all..

My question is, why do you feel the need to break the law? The roads belong to all of us, and we all have an obligation to work to keep us safe..

By the way, watch out, I will be in Vancouver next week for the holidays so you might run into me and no I will not get out of your way if I am following the law. It is really a shame to read and hear what Vancouver has become...

imjustsaying,

I don't live in WA now, so you have very little worry about me keeping from breaking the law, and if I was to move, it sure as heck would not be FL, Of course being born in WA, I am really surprised how many have become real jerks in that neck of the woods..nope, never worried about the mattress tags at all, heck I was hoping they would arrest me and throw me in the Federal Pen, man those guys get to kick back and relax and let the slave labor fix their meals and wash their cloths for them!

Woosker, As long as I am passing slower traffic I am not in violation of the law, I cannot be forced to decrease my speed to merge into slower traffic to accommodate an individual who is breaking the law..just because you want to pass traffic in excess of the posted limit does not mean I am breaking the law by traveling at the posted speed limit..and I would push the point in a court of law, you cannot be forced to break the law by another individual and you cannot be convicted of following the law..the whole point of my posts is hinged on the fact that the normal travel lane is moving slower than the posted speed limit, now of course if the normal travel lane is traveling the posted speed limit, then yes, I would, by law have to merge into the normal travel lane..

Actually hawkeye, you can start to increase speed after you are visually aware of an increase of speed zone, again it is a judgment call on the part of the officer.

JohnCasey,

If that is the way WSP is enforcing the law, then it is obvious, they have interpreted differently than many states, as long as your passing others that are driving slower than the posted speed, even if your in the passing lane doing the speed limit you are not impeding the flow of traffic, All I am saying is you cannot be forced to break the law IE: speed and you can't be penalized by doing the speed limit and you can't be forced to diminish your speed to clear the way for someone breaking the law. Of course it all comes down to interpretation..by the officer witnessing..

Hawkeye,

The way the law is suppose to be enforced is and it is a judgment call by the officer, you are suppose to start slowing as soon as you are visually aware of the reduction in speed sign.. So if you are visually aware of a reduction you are suppose to start reducing speed, but you should not be ticketed until you have passed the speed sign...at least this is the way the law was enforced where I lived and worked..
