“Move Over” Law Now In Effect

On October 1st, a newly enacted law went into effect throughout the state of Maryland.  It has been referred to as the “Move-Over” law and is designed to increase the safety of first responders stopped alongside the roadways throughout the State. 

The purpose of this law is to provide an increased layer of separation between the law enforcement officer, fire/rescue personnel, and/or motorists stopped on the shoulder of a highway.  This is accomplished by motorists either safely moving out of the travel lane next to where the emergency vehicle - operating it’s emergency lights is, or if that is not possible, to reduce their speed while passing the stopped emergency vehicle.

 

Under Transportation Article Title 21, Section 405 (e):

Transportation Concerns are a Priority in Southern Prince George’s County

Many of the residents who drive in Oxon Hill have experienced what has become a very high volume, and somewhat dangerous daily commute during the evening rush hour.  How many times have we seen congestion along Indian Head Highway at the Wilson Bridge Drive and Livingston Road/Kerby Hill Road intersections? 

How many times have we seen the Oxon Hill Road main corridor congested with Rivertowne Shoppers as well as workers traveling home for the evening?  With the addition of the National Harbor, the BRAC re-alignment that is due next year, as well as growing communities in Oxon Hill, Fort Washington, Accokeek, and areas in Charles County, now is the time to address this matter. 

Prince George's County Bus Drivers Strike

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) - Bus drivers in Prince George's County are on strike and say they won't return to work until their demands are met.

Service on TheBus was limited Monday and Tuesday. Veolia Transportation, which operates the service, says it brought in workers from other areas to drive some routes.

About 14,000 people ride TheBus daily.

Union members say they want better job security, health insurance and higher wages. They're also seeking changes to a disciplinary policy.

A spokeswoman for Veolia says the dispute is primarily about cameras installed on the buses to monitor driver behavior.

The county has suspended fares on all routes until the strike ends.
