SALT LAKE CITY — Lawmakers are getting tough on drivers who fail to slow down and move over for emergency vehicles.
Under HB411, which passed the Senate Wednesday, drivers who fail to yield to a passing or stationary emergency vehicle would be required to attend a defensive driving course within 90 days of sentencing — or risk having their license suspended for 90 days.
Drivers who don't slow down and move over for stationary vehicles are already guilty of a statutory infraction and must pay a fine, said bill co-sponsor Sen. John Valentine, R-Orem.
The measure, after being amended in the Senate, returns to the House for its consideration.
