This is the new law that requires drivers to veer away

on the side of a road. If moving to an outer lane is not possible, motorists

The purpose of this program is to empower the local, private, and corporate
with the knowledge and ability to assist law enforcement. Civilians can
assist by identifying observed criminal or terrorist behaviors, and alerting
law enforcement. This information is then entered into the Statewide Intelligence
Management System (SIMS). The SIMS database is used to collect and share
information on suspected involvement in all types of criminal activity.
SIMS allows agencies to store intelligence for their own use or for the
use of the broader law enforcement community.
