I was ticketed for failure to move over in Alpharetta, GA.
The move over law in Georgia is designed to protect the safety of emergency workers on the highway.
This law requires that you move your vehicle one lane over if possible when you see emergency lights flashing on the side of the road.
If you cannot move over one lane, you must reduce your speed below the speed limit and be prepared to stop your vehicle if necessary.
In this particular case, I was able to convince the prosecutor and the court that my client was unable to move his vehicle to the proper place because of the traffic surrounding him.
I got his charge dismissed.
