PHOENIX - Move over or get pulled over.
That's the message from a group of state agencies launching the "Move Over Arizona" campaign this March.
It's been the law for years to move over one lane, or slow down for law enforcement officials pulled over on the side of the highway.
Last year a revision was added that requires drivers to move over for tow trucks, highway workers, stranded drivers and other vehicles with flashing lights.
But according to the Arizona Department of Transportation, many people are not aware of the law and others simply just don't follow it.
That's why every Monday in March, law Arizona enforcement officers will be out on the streets looking for motorists breaking the law.
If caught they could be ticketed and face a maximum fine of $180.
ADOT Spokesman Doug Nintzel said highway workers have a very dangerous job.
Twenty-three highway workers are killed every month nationally.
Tow truck drivers also risk their lives to help stranded drivers.
One tow truck driver is killed about every six days in the United States.
