From the Illinois State Board of Education:

Too many Illinois State Troopers have been put in danger or lost their lives by drivers not following the law. The Illinois State Board of Education and the Illinois State Police are working together to ensure all teen drivers and their parents and families have the information they need to protect those who protect us. Scott’s Law, also known as the Move Over Law, was named after Lieutenant Scott Gillen of the Chicago Fire Department who was struck and killed by an intoxicated driver while assisting at a crash on the Dan Ryan Expressway. Scott’s Law mandates that upon approaching any stationary vehicle with flashing emergency lights, including commercial trucks and cars, all approaching vehicles shall:

·         reduce speed

·         change lanes if possible; and

·         proceed with caution.
