According to Hopkinsville police, Kentucky has a law that requires drivers to move over for stopped emergency vehicles.
The following is Kentucky's law as it pertains to moving over for stopped emergency vehicles:
Upon approaching a stationary emergency vehicle or public safety vehicle, when the emergency vehicle or public safety vehicle is giving a signal by displaying alternately flashing yellow, red, red and white, red and blue, or blue lights, a person who drives an approaching vehicle shall, while proceeding with due caution:
Yield the right-of-way by moving to a lane not adjacent to that of the authorized emergency vehicle, if:
The person is driving on a highway having at least four lanes with not fewer than two lanes proceeding in the same direction as the approaching vehicle; and
If it is possible to make the lane change with due regard to safety and traffic conditions; or
Reduce the speed of the vehicle, maintaining a safe speed to road conditions, if changing lanes would be impossible or unsafe.
So, remember to move into the other lane to give officers room and safety when conducting traffic stops. Or, you could be pulled over yourself.
Local law enforcement and their families very much appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
