The Pawling Fire Department would like to remind you to move over and slow down! It's the Law!
The New York State Move Over Law Protects law enforcement officers, emergency workers, Volunteer Firefighters, Ambulance Workers, tow and service vehicle operators and other maintenance workers stopped along roadways while performing their duties.
ALBANY, N.Y. – New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed legislation to expand the state’s Move-Over Law to include volunteer firefighters and ambulance workers. According to the governor’s office, the measure requires drivers to slow down and move over a lane when approaching a vehicle with flashing blue or green lights that are operated by volunteer firefighters or ambulance workers involved in a roadside emergency. “Our first responders risk their lives day in and day out, often putting their own safety and well-being in jeopardy, in order to protect their communities and their fellow New Yorkers,” Governor Cuomo said. “This new law will help ensure that first responders are protected from avoidable hazards when responding to a roadside emergency.” Previously, the Move-Over law only applied to drivers approaching stopped police, emergency, or hazard vehicles with flashing red and white or amber lights.
The new law applies also to vehicles with flashing blue or green lights that are operated by volunteer fire or ambulance workers involved in a roadside emergency.
