Briefly: NY expands 'move over' law | TCA announces keynote speaker

Emergency triangle on side of highway

New York is the latest state to expand its "mover over" law.

Gov. Kathy Hochul recently signed a new law that requires motorists to move over for all vehicles stopped along the side of a highway. The law "requires an operator of a motor vehicle to exercise due care to avoid colliding with a vehicle which is parked, stopped, or standing on the shoulder of a parkway or controlled-access highway" by changing lanes.

According to the governor's office, nearly 300 drivers are struck and killed roadside every year, and 37 people were struck and killed outside of a disabled vehicle in New York between 2016 and 2020.
