State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) applauded the recent passage of House Bill 58 in the Ohio House, legislation that requires drivers to change lanes, if able, or be cautious when approaching stationary waste collection vehicles that are displaying flashing, rotating, or oscillating lights.

The bill authorizes stationary waste collection vehicles that are collecting garbage, refuse, trash, or recyclable materials to use lights that are flashing, rotating, or oscillating. It also defines the term waste collection vehicle.

“House Bill 58 will keep our waste collection employees safe,”  Rep. Anielski said.  “All Ohioans will be able to recognize flashing lights and proceed with caution.”

A violation of this Move-Over-Law is a minor misdemeanor, or can be a fourth or third degree misdemeanor if the offender has been convicted of or pleaded guilty to one or more specified traffic offenses within one year of violating the Move-Over Law. Currently, the law requires the court to fine two times the usual amount imposed for the violation, in addition to all other penalties required by law.

HB 58 passed with bipartisan support and will now head to the Senate for further consideration.
