The Indiana State Police are focusing on keeping motorists safe, and one way they are hoping to achieve this goal is by holding the “Move Over, Slow Down” traffic safety initiative next week. The Indiana car accident attorneys at Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin point out the campaign will focus on enforcing the state’s “Move Over” law.
Indiana’s Move Over law went into effect three months ago and requires any motorist traveling in the left lane to shift to the right lane if a vehicle approaches from behind. Officials say the law aims to prevent collisions between vehicles and emergency crews.
Officers say they will be out in full force next week to make sure drivers clear the way for other vehicles. Failure to do so can result in citations and fines.
In an article from WLFI 18 News, Sgt. Kim Riley with the Tippecanoe County Sheriff’s Department explains that besides moving over in traffic, there are other things you can do to prevent accidents as well. For instance, slowing down significantly reduces your chance of an involvement in a crash.
Educating the public about the importance of obeying the state’s Move Over law could significantly reduce the number of accidents in our region each ear. That’s why the Indiana personal injury lawyers at, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin are hopeful the Move Over initiative is a success.

A Terre Haute Car Accident that occurred recently was responsible for leaving three people with serious injuries. WIBQ News stated the crash occurred at around 3:00 a.m. at the intersection of 13th Street and College Avenue in the downtown district of the city on Wednesday, February 13.
Reports indicate a yellow taxi van had stopped along the street with a group of customers in the vehicle. While the van was stopped though, a pickup truck failed to come to a halt behind the van and plowed into its rear-end.
The impact of the collision left one of the passengers in the taxicab with severe head trauma, while the driver of the cab suffered several deep lacerations to his leg. They were each rushed to a local hospital to receive treatment. A passenger in the pickup truck was also injured and taken to a trauma center to be examined further.
When a person is injured in a crash at no fault of their own, it can often leave the victim confused as to what action to take regarding their injuries. The Terre Haute Personal Injury Attorneys with the law firm of Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin explain it’s important accident victims seek the medical attention they need immediately. Then, save copies of all expenses incurred as a result of the accident and contact an attorney about seeking compensation for your loss.
