Traffic Enforcement

2014 Patrol Car
Traffic enforcement is every officer's responsibility and we remain committed to taking a proactive approach to ensure safe travel on our roadways.  CBPD also has one motorcycle unit and unmarked vehicles that are specifically utilized to conduct traffic enforcement. 

Move Over Law: If you are driving on an interstate or roadway with multiple lanes of travel in the same direction, and you approach an emergency or law enforcement vehicle parked along the roadway, you must vacate the lane closest to that vehicle as soon as it is safe to do so. If you are not able to safely move over, you must slow down to a speed of 20 MPH below the posted speed limit unless directed otherwise by a law enforcement officer. Violating the move over law puts both yourself and a public safety professional at risk.

  • Effective July 1, 2014, the law was changed to include sanitation vehicles and utility service vehicles.
