I would assume that is why the LEO isn’t getting charged.

It is LEO judgement as to whether he/she should or can execute said turn safely before approaching traffic is clear. Some days there is literally no room to move over or suddenly stop without endangering everyone. Slowing down and moving over while yielding is required due to safety concerns for LEO & Fire/Ambulance. I due exactly this whenever I am approached either from front,rear, or side and execute full stop to accommodate safety. Kansas has a “Move Over” law, however, it is sometimes impossible due to adjacent lane traffic or unsafe manner. Slamming on the brakes at highway speeds can be accomplished with limited control but caution is advised for all parties involved.
