Illinois state trooper injured when driver fails to move over

Some Illinois residents may be unaware of the statewide "move over" law, which requires drivers to give clearance to authorized emergency vehicles, such as police cars, that are stopped on the side of the road.

You would not clear out a small foot-by-foot chunk of the winshield so that you could see out of it, and then hope the rest of the sap fell off because of natural processes, right?

Relatively speaking, it really didn't take that long for us to go from our first automobile to futuristic super cars.
