“Move Over Act” Takes Effect Statewide


trafficNY – The next time you see flashing lights you’re going to want to move over to the side of the road or risk some stiff penalties.  The “Move Over Act” is now officially in effect statewide.

The law requires drivers to move over to the lane that’s furthest away or slow down on roads with one lane when they come to a parked emergency vehicle with its lights flashing.

Penalties include a fine and points on your drivers license.
