Move Over Law

New York's Move Over Law and Safe Driving Tips on the Thruway

  • As soon as you see lights, vests or reflectors, check traffic around you, SLOW DOWN and safely MOVE OVER.
  • Drivers MUST use due care when approaching an emergency vehicle or hazard vehicle including police vehicles, fire trucks, ambulances, construction and maintenance vehicles and tow trucks.
  • The Move Over Law applies to both sides of the roadway, not just the shoulder on the right.
