Move Over Law – Titled the “Jabari Bailey Highway Safety Act,” this law increases penalties for those who fail to move over or slow down for stationary vehicles on the side of the road. Previously, only emergency vehicles were included in this statute; however, now any stationary vehicle on the side of the road could lead to a hefty fine, and class B misdemeanor, which carries a maximum jail sentence of 6 months. The statute, as found in Tenn. Code Ann. §55-8-132, states, “Upon approaching a stationary vehicle that is giving a signal by use of flashing hazard lights, a person who drives an approaching vehicle shall: (A) Proceeding with due caution, yield the right-of-way by making a lane change into a lane not adjacent to the stationary vehicle if possible with due regard to safety and traffic conditions, if on a highway having at least four (4) lanes with not less than two (2) lanes proceeding in the same direction as the approaching vehicle; or (B) Proceeding with due caution, reduce the speed of the vehicle, maintaining a safe speed for road conditions, if changing lanes would be impossible or unsafe.” A fist violation of this offense is a Class B misdemeanor, punishable by a minimum fine of $250.00 and a maximum fine of $500.00, or a maximum jail sentence of 30 days, or both. A second violation of this offense is a Class B misdemeanor, punishable 6 months in jail and a mandatory fine of $1,000.00. A third or subsequent violation of this offense is a Class A misdemeanor, which carries a possible 11 months and 29 days in jail, as well as a mandatory fine of $2,500.00.
