Why Norah’s Law?
To get Indiana lawmakers to adopt the same bill passed in Maryland that went into effect on October 1, 2022.
Maryland’s “move over” law, which currently applies only to emergency or service vehicles, has been expanded to include any vehicle on the side of the highway.
“We all know how dangerous it can be on the side of the road with our flashers on,” bill co-sponsor Sen. Jeff Waldstreicher (D-Silver Spring) said during a January hearing of Maryland’s Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee. “And culturally, it’s important that we start to advise our fellow constituents and fellow Marylanders that the appropriate response is to move over, to make space, to make sure people feel safe on the side of the road when they’re under difficult circumstances.”
How You Can Help
Many states protect all disabled vehicles under their respective move over laws and we aim to make sure our fellow Hoosiers will be protected under this law.
We will legislate to create “Norah’s Law” so that all disabled vehicles are protected. Norah’s Law will save hundreds if not thousands of Hoosiers lives. A law that protects all of us.
Please sign up for email updates on the progress being made in creating Norah’s Law. We will need to show public support for creating this new legislation (signatures) sometime in 2023.
