The Slow Down to Get Around Law

The Slow Down to Get Around Law


Did you know that when you are driving down the road and see a garbage truck, that you must yield the right of way. KRS 189.377 says that when approaching a garbage truck with its yellow, red, white or amber lights flashing that you must “yield the right of way to the solid waste collection service vehicle or any collection service employees….”.

The law requires that you slow  down to a safe speed for the conditions and proceed with “due care and caution”. Common sense but for those who don’t have any, its the law.
