Virginia's "Move Over" Law

This is a serious situation developing in Virginia and many other states.   Police officers are in the most danger when they are working the shoulders of our highways, and we can expect that the Police and Courts will be zealous in enforcing this relatively new law.

The law, as written in Virginia, has some problems that may make enforcement controversial, but nobody can argue the underlying premise.

In this video we see a faulty application of the law.    It is a video of an accident, but it isn't because the person didn't move over.    The officer is parked on the left side of a road.   Another vehicle is parked in the middle of the one lane road and a car comes whipping around him, onto the shoulder, and hits the cruiser.    This is not a "move over" situation--- it is a one-lane road!
