AUSTIN (KXAN) - Move Over. Slow Down.
It is the new state law to protect TxDOT crews, but it could also mean thousands of dollars out of your pocket. Drivers face this new restriction in work zones starting Sept. 1.
For the last decade, the rule of the road in Texas has been for drivers to move over or slow down when they approached police or emergency vehicles. Now, you can add transportation crews to that list.
Look for TxDOT vehicles on the shoulder with their lights flashing. Move out of the lane closest to that that crew, and - when possible - reduce your speed to 20 miles per hour below the posted limit. If there is only one lane, just slow down.
When the speed limit is 25 miles per hour or less, you will have to reduce your speed to five miles per hour.
"Once it becomes known that it's not tolerable, then it will be more likely to be enforced and everybody will follow the rules," said Marc Delgado, a Texas driver.
Remember, breaking this law could cost you a lot of money - $2,000.
