With Hawaii signing on in 2012 as the 50th and final State to enact "Move Over" legislation, we need to get the word out to all drivers and maximize the safety potential of these laws. By working with local organizations and raising public awareness of "Move Over" laws through earned and social media, you can make a difference and save lives.
All 50 States have "Move Over" laws to protect law enforcement officers and other first responders stopped on our Nation's roads. Yet only 71% of the public are aware of these laws, and traffic-related incidents continue to be the number one cause of death among on-duty law enforcement officers. Together with our law enforcement partners and State Highway Safety Offices, NHTSA is working to increase awareness of these life-saving "Move Over" laws and highlight the need to protect public safety professionals who place themselves at risk to protect motorists.

Welcome, Law Enforcement. We need your help!
The 2017 National Seat Belt Enforcement Mobilization is May 15 to June 4, 2017
NHTSA has prepared this CIOT Products for Enforcement Action Kit (PEAK) to help you alert the public to prepare for maximum high-visibility seat belt enforcement.
Statistics show that passenger vehicle occupants are buckling up more during the day, but not enough at night. This mobilization is created to increase awareness 24-7, but a strong enforcement effort is urged between the nighttime hours of 6 p.m. and 5:59 a.m. due to the significant number of violators and fatal crashes during this time.
Paid advertising will run from May 15 to June 4, 2017. The enforcement period runs from May 22 until June 4, 2017.

will help keep drunk drivers off our roads by allowing users to call a taxi
or a friend and by identifying their location so they can be picked up.
