RCMP say some motorists still aren’t getting the message that they need to move over for emergency vehicles. Four recent enforcement operations focused on the “Move Over” law and resulted in a number of tickets and warnings. 10 tickets were issued to drivers who failed to move over while a police vehicle was stopped on the side of the road with emergency lights flashing. RCMP also issued a seven-day roadside driving suspension when a motorist failed a roadside breath test at 11 a-m.
