State Marks National Move Over Day With Vehicle Parade
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York State Police and state transportation agencies are reminding motorists to obey the Move Over Law.
The third Saturday in October has been designated National Move Over Day, a reminder to drivers to slow down and safely move over while approaching police, fire and other emergency vehicles and tow trucks that are stopped along roads and highways.
Roadside signs across the state are displaying reminders Saturday to promote awareness of the Move Over Law.
New York's law was enacted in 2011 and has since been expanded to include a wider range of emergency and hazard vehicles.
State troopers, the Thruway Authority and the Department of Transportation are holding a "Move Over parade" Saturday on Central Avenue in Albany. Tow truck operators and emergency personnel are also participating.
