Move Over Law

  • The "Move Over Law" is a part of the "Failure to Yield to Emergency Vehicles Law".
  • Tennessee was the 30th state to establish a move over law which creates a safety zone to protect police, firefighters, and other emergency personnel.
  • Beginning July 1, 2006, penalties for violating the Move Over law in Tennessee increased from a maximum $50 fine to a $100 to $500 fine and possibly up to 30 days in jail.
  • " T.C.A. 55-8-132. Operation of vehicles and streetcars on approach of authorized emergency vehicles.
  • " The "Move Over" campaign was created to raise awareness of the move over law, and protect state troopers and others whose workplace is often the side of a busy highway.

Amendment to Financial Responsibility Law
Tennessee's Financial Responsibility Law (T.C.A.,55-12-139) changed effective January 1, 2002. At the time the driver of a motor vehicle is charged with any moving violation under Title 55, Chapters 8 and 10, Parts 1-5, Chapter 50; any other local ordinance regulating traffic; or at the time of an accident for which notice is required under Section 55-10-106, the officer will request evidence of financial responsibility. In the case of an accident for which notice is required under Section 55-10-106, the officer will request such evidence from all drivers involved in the accident, without regard to apparent or actual fault.

In addition, effective July 2, 2003, T.C.A. 55-12-140 requires the court to report the dismissal of violations of failure to provide evidence of financial responsibility under 55-12-139, if the charge was dismissed because the person obtained evidence of financial responsibility prior to the court's disposition. The department will place a STOP on your vehicle file and not issue a renewal of registration for any vehicle for which evidence of financial responsibility is required under 55-12-139. This applies to drivers with cases dismissed because of obtaining the evidence of financial responsibility prior to the court's disposition and drivers suspended because of conviction.

>back to top

Evidence of Financial Responsibility
Evidence needed to comply with the law includes documentation such as an insurance card, binder or declaration page of a policy from an insurance company authorized to do business in Tennessee, stating that a policy of insurance meeting the requirements of the Tennessee Financial Responsibility Law of 1977 has been issued; or a certificate from the Department of Safety noting that a cash deposit or bond has been posted in the amount required by the Tennessee Financial Responsibility Law of 1977, or that a person has qualified as a self-insurer under Section 55-12-111, or the motor vehicle being operated at the time of the violation was owned by a carrier subject to the jurisdiction of the Department of Safety or the Interstate Commerce Commission, or was owned by the United States, this state or any political subdivision thereof, and that such motor vehicle was being operated with the owner's consent.

Child Safety Tips

  1. Make sure your child learns his or her address and phone number at an early age. A second phone number of a friend or relative is also helpful.
  2. Teach your child how to call 911 in case of an emergency.
  3. Do not leave a child unattended while shopping, visiting with neighbors or friends, or running errands. Under no circumstances should you leave a child alone in a vehicle.
  4. When home alone, children should never open the door for strangers.
  5. On the telephone, your child should never let anyone know they are home alone. Discuss responses such as: "Mom/Dad is busy right now."
  6. A child should never leave school or daycare with anyone except a parent or guardian. You and your child should have a password in case you send someone else to pick them up.
  7. When shopping or in a crowd, children should be taught who to go to if separated from you. (Cashier, clerk, security officer, etc.) The child should never leave the store looking for you.
  8. Make sure your child knows to scream and run if approached in an alarming way by anyone.
  9. Your child should know to make you aware anytime he or she feels uncomfortable with anyone.
  10. Get to know the Internet and the sites your child visits. Teach your child to never give out personal information online. Your child should NEVER arrange a meeting with anyone he or she meets online.
  11. Make sure your child always checks with you before going anywhere with anyone. Have them inform you of where they are going, whom they are going with and when they will be home.
  12. Keep a record of your child's personal and medical information on hand in case of an emergency. Always include a recent photograph.
  13. Remember to teach children that police officers are their friends, and that we are there to help them.

DUI Facts
A single DUI (Driving Under the Influence) conviction could cost you as much as $5,000 or more after all fines and fees have been paid. A first offense DUI charge could easily add up to such a staggering cost! The cost could be even higher if you don't qualify for the restricted driver license for driving to work during your suspension. This could add expense for alternate transportation (taxi, bus fare, etc.) or even worse, the complete loss of your employment.

Driving Under the Influence (DUI) includes not only alcohol, but any intoxicant, narcotic drug, or other drug producing central nervous system effects -- including prescription drugs.

Offense Fine Jail Time License Revocation
First Conviction $350 - $1,500 24 hours - 11 months 29 days One (1) Year
Second Conviction $600 - $3,500 45 days - 11 months 29 days Two (2) Years

  • Wear clothes and shoes that give you freedom of movement.
  • Don't walk alone at night and always avoid areas where there are few people.
