Ted Foss Move Over Law

In Honor of Fallen Minnesota State Patrol Trooper Ted Foss:

  • ​When traveling on a road with two or more lanes, drivers must keep over one full lane away from stopped emergency vehicles with flashing lights activated — ambulance, fire, law enforcement, maintenance and construction vehicles.

  • Failing to take these actions endangers personnel who provide critical and life-saving services. Fines can exceed $100.
