Move over Laws : Important information for your safety!

"Steer Clear" laws in NJ and PA - New laws require that drivers move over or slow down when they encounter an incident along the side of the road.

When approaching stationary (non-moving) emergency vehicles, tow trucks and other highway safety vehicles displaying red, blue and/or amber flashing lights, you must move over one lane or, if it is not safe to move over, slow down below the posted speed limit.

Visit The New Jersey Move Over Law webpage and The PA Steer Clear webpage for further info.
