ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York officials are reminding drivers of a new state law requiring them to move over a lane when volunteer firefighters or ambulance workers are involved in a roadside emergency.

The so-called move over law requires drivers to slow down and switch lanes when approaching police cars, fire trucks, ambulances and certain other emergency vehicles. The law has now been expanded to include volunteer firefighters and ambulance workers who are displaying blue or green lights and are stopped along the roadway.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the expanded law will help protect firefighters and ambulance workers who put their well-being on the line to help their neighbors.
