Under current law, a person commits a class B traffic offense if the
person fails to exercise more than ordinary care and caution in
approaching, overtaking, or passing an authorized service vehicle that is
performing its service function and displaying its lights. The bill states
that a person commits a class A traffic offense if the person passes a

snowplow that is operated by a state, county, or local government,
displaying its lights, and performing its service function in echelon
formation with one or more other such snowplows. Echelon formation
means a formation in which snowplows are arranged diagonally, with
each unit stationed behind and to the right, or behind and to the left, of the
unit ahead.
