Help Keep Utility Workers Safe: Move Over & Slow Down

Posted on Monday, July 24, 2017

Move over or slow down. By following these two rules of the road, you can help save lives and avoid receiving a traffic ticket.

Effective July 1, Iowa law requires motorists to change lanes or slow down when approaching stationary utility and maintenance vehicles with flashing lights activated.

This expanded law is designed to protect motorists and Iowa’s utility workers who are at high risk while performing their duties on Iowa’s roadways. Motorists can face penalties for violating the law.

Iowa residents can learn more about the law and sign a pledge to move over and slow down at

Cedar Falls Utilities thanks customers for your part in keeping utility workers safe.
