Over the next two months, state officials are beginning emphasis patrols to educate drivers about the requirement to slow down and move over in emergency and work zones.

State law requires drivers to move over one lane, if possible, and slow down to 10 mph below the posted speed limit when approaching roadside work area, including for police, fire, paramedics, tow trucks, maintenance workers and other road crews.

The emphasis patrols for Clark County are scheduled for Sunday. People can follow Washington State Patrol Trooper Will Finn on Twitter at @wspd5pio for more information on the local campaign.
