Current law requires a driver who is overtaking an emergency vehicle, tow vehicle, or public utility vehicle that is parked on the side of the road to reduce and maintain a safe speed. The bill requires:
- The driver to slow down to 25 miles per hour if the speed limit is less than 45 miles per hour; or
- The driver to slow down at least 20 miles per hour less than the posted speed limit if the speed limit is 45 miles per hour or more.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
