New Jersey’s Move Over Law
Every minute of every day emergency responders across the country work tirelessly to help save lives at the scene of traffic incidents.
Every year hundreds of emergency responders representing fire, law enforcement, emergency medical services, towing and transportation agencies are struck and either injured or killed while responding.
The majority of drivers do not know to move over and slow down when they see responders working on our roadways.
New Jersey’s Move Over law, requires motorists to “Move Over” and change lanes to provide a safe distance for law enforcement officers or other responders on roadsides.
