WINONA (AP) – Authorities across Minnesota will step up enforcement of Minnesota’s “move over” law this weekend.

Sunday marks the 14th anniversary of the death of Trooper Ted Foss of Winona.

Foss was making a traffic stop on Interstate 90 when he was hit by a passing vehicle and killed on Aug. 31, 2000.

The Minnesota State Patrol and local law enforcement will hold daylong saturation patrols on state highways Sunday.

The patrols will remind motorists of the Ted Foss Move Over Law, which the Legislature enacted in Foss’ honor.

The law means if there are two or more lanes, motorists must move one full lane away from a stopped emergency vehicle with flashing lights.

Motorists must slow down if they can’t safely move over.

Those who don’t could be fined over $100.
