Federal bill requires police fleets to install safety tech to protect officers from being struck by other drivers
from Police Magazine
Two senators and a state representative from Illinois have introduced a bill that aims to increase awareness of Move Over laws and encourage police fleets to install safety technology to further promote officer safety along the side of the road. U.S. Senators Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth and U.S. Representative Cheri Bustos introduced the Protecting Roadside First Responders Act, which allows states to apply for grant funding to increase public awareness of Move Over laws, which require motorists to keep the right lane clear if an emergency vehicle is parked along the side of the road.
