In Wisconsin and Iowa, drivers are required to move over or slow down when approaching emergency vehicles that have warning lights flashing, including tow trucks. It's known as the 'Move Over Law.'

In the last three years, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation said there have been more than 2,300 violations of the law. There were 922 convictions in 2019.
