Cuomo puts fo­cus on ‘Move Over’ law

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

Gov. An­drew Cuomo has an­nounced a week­long cam­paign to raise aware­ness of New York’s “Move Over” law, which re­quires driv­ers to use due care, slow down and safely move over when ap­proach­ing lawen­force­ment ve­hi­cles, fire trucks, am­bu­lances, tow trucks and con­struc­tion and main­te­nance ve­hi­cles stopped along any road.

The law was es­tab­lished in 2011 to pro­tect la- en­force­ment and emer­gency ser­vices per­son­nel and has since been ex­panded to in­clude a wider range of ve­hi­cles.

A state pub­lic ser­vice an­nounce­ment fea­tur­ing emer­gency and haz­ard re­spon­ders will be shown on broad­cast and ca­ble sta­tions through­out the state, in all 27 ser­vice ar­eas along the Thruway and in 24 De­part­ment of Mo­tor Ve­hi­cles of­fices.

State po­lice Troop T, which pa­trols the Thruway, will con­duct a “move over” en­force­ment de­tail on the Thruway through Fri­day.
