NEW YORK (CBS 2) — A new year always brings new laws and one in New York is designed to protect emergency workers.
The “Move Over Act” took effect Saturday. It calls for drivers to slow down when approaching an emergency vehicle with its lights flashing.
If you’re on a highway, the rule goes one step further. Drivers now have to move out of the lane next to an emergency vehicle at the scene of an accident.
Violators face a fine and points on their license.
