A Southlake Police Officer’s dashcam video captures a close call involving another Southlake Police Officer that had pulled over a vehicle to the side of the highway.
The near-accident happened recently on a westbound stretch of Highway 114 between Carroll Street and White Chapel Boulevard. The video demonstrates the importance of moving out of the lane next to where an officer has pulled over a vehicle. It’s called the Move Over Law.
The Move Over Law requires motorists to move over and change lanes to give safe clearance to law enforcement officers, firefighters, ambulances, and in some cases, tow-truck drivers.
Take a look at the video and the story that aired on KDFWs FOX4 and remember to move over and change lanes to give safe clearance to all first responders.
