Traffic stops are very high risk,” said Idaho State Police Sgt. Brandalyn Crapo. “They’re necessary to keep people safe on the road and to help those stranded, but we need motoristshelp so we can all go home at night.

Idaho’s Slow Down Move Over law requires drivers to slow down, change lanes or both when passing police and other emergency vehicles that are stopped on the roadway.

Slowing down and moving over for emergency vehicles and workers isn’t just a courtesy, it’s the law,” Crapo said. “Drivers need to be alert to emergency lights and vehicles and always alert to what’s happening around them. That keeps all of us safe.
