Move over law now includes garbage trucks

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

You may be used to moving over for law enforcement vehicles and emergency vehicles, but starting August 1, you will be required to move over for garbage trucks too.

Alabama's "Move Over" law was originally passed in 2006 and only included emergency vehicles and law enforcement vehicles. Wreckers were later added to the law. Now garbage, trash, and recycle trucks are on the list too.

Rep. Mac McCutcheon sponsored the bill. He said he did that after talking with people in his North Alabama district about the need to protect workers on garbage trucks.

You must either move over when possible or slow down to 15mph. If you are caught breaking the law, your first ticket will be $25, the second will be $50, and the third will be $100.

    Why did Cracker Barrel fire Brad's wife? It's really no one's business, other than Brad's and his wife's, but that hasn't stopped people around the world from demanding answers after a Harrison County, IN, man publicly asked the restaurant chain why his wife Nanette was let go from her job at the Cracker Barrel in Corydon.
