If a patrol car is pulled over to the side of the road, you have to change to the next lane (away from the stopped vehicle) or slow down by 20 mph.......

More information on the law is available at this site.

Having seen, thanks to the popularity of shocking videos on both cable channels and the internet, videos of police officers being struck by vehicles while apprehending drunk drivers, speeders...etc., I believe I understand the rationale behind such a law.

That has been a law in Florida for years.

This law does make sense. When you have a child that is a police officer you appreciate laws like this. The area he works speeding isn't an issue, but rather drugs, gangs, and other violence that causes his mom worry.

That sounds like a great idea. I see no reason why I couldn't slow down to 70mph if it would help keep Georgia's finest a bit safer. ;-)

I can see the sense behind that.
