New York's 'Move Over' Law now expanded to require drivers to move over for all vehicles

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Joshua Smith knows better than anyone how dangerous it can be on the side of the road.

He's been a tow truck driver with Rusiniak's Service in Cheektowaga for six years and he makes it a point to always be on guard and to look over his shoulder when he's roadside helping a stranded customer.

He notices how the cars driving by don't always slow down.

"Speed past us. They don't slow down or they wait until the last minute to slow down that's going to cause another accident," he said. "...And then as soon as you hear the rumble strips, you either, you gotta dart out of the way guys."

Every year in the U.S., about 300 people are killed while outside their vehicles.


On Wednesday, a new law goes into effect in New York State requiring drivers to slow down and move over for all vehicles on the shoulder.
