A week-long campaign is underway to raise awareness of New York's Move Over Law.

The law, which was enacted in 2011, requires motorists to slow down and safely move over when approaching emergency, maintenance or construction vehicles stopped along the road.

Variable message signs will display reminders across the state and informational posters will be hung at Thruway service areas.  Thruway Authority staff and State Police will be handing out flyers and and talking to travelers about the law at services areas along the Thruway.

Troopers will also be conducting a Move Over enforcement detail along the Thruway.

"New York has zero tolerance for reckless, dangerous drivers, and with the launch of this new campaign, state and local officials will help educate New Yorkers on the importance of moving over for first responders," Governor Andrew Cuomo said. "This campaign sends a clear message to motorists to obey the law, stay alert and help ensure the safety of men and women along New York roadways."
