The Lauderhill Police Department's Traffic Unit is tasked with traffic control and enforcement within the City of Lauderhill. Its main purpose is to reduce traffic crashes, injuries and fatalities related to crashes, and to facilitate the safe and expeditious flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic through education and enforcement of State and local traffic regulations. The members of this Unit are tasked with patrolling in marked and unmarked vehicles, and motorcycles specifically targeting drivers violating traffic laws, who may be under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and aggressive driving offenders. These officers are also trained in the investigation and reconstruction of traffic fatalities and serious injury crashes. Police Officers and Police Service Aides (PSA's) assist in follow up investigations of all Hit and Run crashes that occur in the city. The PSA’s are also trained in the investigation of traffic fatalities and serious injury crashes.
Florida law requires you to Move Over a lane — when you can safely do so - for stopped law enforcement, emergency, sanitation, utility service vehicles and tow trucks or wreckers.
- If you can’t move over - or when on a two-lane road - slow to a speed that is 20 mph less than the posted speed limit.
- Slow down to 5 mph when the posted speed limit is 20 mph or less.
When you fail to Move Over, you put yourself and others at risk; you could crash into a vehicle or worker.
Violating the Move Over law will result in a fine, fees, and points on your driving record. For more information, see section 316.126, Florida Statutes.
