Driver of Weinermobile pulled over for not following Move Over Law

WAUKESHA COUNTY, Wis. — Wisconsin police had to relish this traffic stop.

Waukesha County deputies pulled over an Oscar Mayer Wienermobile for not obeying the Move Over Law, WJDT reported.

The side of the road can be dangerous for first responders and tow truck drivers, so police are vigilant in enforcing the law.

“Each year, hundreds of these hard-working men and women are injured or killed by passing motorists while working along the nation’s highways,” the Sheriff’s Office posted on its Facebook page.

While the Wienermobile driver only received a verbal warning this time, it was certain that the next time his trangression will have a first name -- it’s T-I-C-K-E-T.
