Be Safe, Move Over
The “Move-Over” law went into effect at the beginning of this year. New York State adopted the law that’s been on the books in many other states since 1994. The law requires drivers to reduce their speed, and change lanes as they approach any emergency vehicles that have their lights flashing.
“ New York State Trooper Kevin Dobson, was struck and killed by an oncoming vehicle during a routine traffic violation stop early Saturday morning on the I-290. One of the things that will be looked into during the ongoing investigation is if the new “Move Over” law was broken. Glare from the sun is among the factors which may have also played a part in this terrible tragedy.
Let’s be careful out there!
