According to reports, state's Move Over Law will be expanded this month.

"Governor Kathy Hochul today reminded drivers that New York’s Move Over Law will soon be expanded to include all vehicles which will improve highway safety for everyone. Starting March 27, 2024, drivers will be required to take precautions, including slowing down and moving over, to avoid a crash with all vehicles stopped along the roadway".

The information from Governor Hochul's office notes that: "under the law, when a driver is approaching a vehicle stopped along either shoulder of the road, they should:

- change into a lane not immediately adjacent to the vehicle, or
- slow down to a reasonable speed if unable to safely make a lane change.

The scary thing is when a driver in front of you panics and stops their vehicle. Pay attention for these drivers as well as those on the side of the road.
