This isn't a new law. It passed in 2003, but a recent increase in accidents with pulled-over police cruisers is one of the reasons for heavy enforcement now.
Last year, it happened 26 times. In 2009, four officers and four drivers were injured when a car crashed with a cop who was pulled over on the side of the road. And in 2008, that happened 19 times and injured two officers and one driver.
Police say drunk driving was involved in about one-third of those crashes.
Break this law and you could be ticketed and fined up to $200. If someone is injured, that violation becomes a Class B misdemeanor offense, which carries a fine of up to $500.
