PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Maine state police say troopers have begun enforcing a law that requires drivers to slow down and move over for parked cruisers and other emergency vehicles.

The renewed enforcement of the 2007 law follows six incidents since December in which drivers hit state police cruisers after the troopers had pulled someone over or stopped to help a motorist.

Each cruiser sustained significant damage, and four troopers suffered injuries.

The Portland Press Herald says one special detail last week resulted in citations for 11 drivers who violated the law. Any driver who is videotaped by police violating the “move over” law will be issued a summons and fined $311.
