NEW JERSEY MOVE OVER LAW CHANGES PROPOSED

A proposal to our MOVE-OVER law is in the works that would not only keep the $100-$500 fine but would now penalize violators with 2 points to their driver's licenses.  This change is being proposed by State Senators Jim Holzapfel and Vin Gopal & Assembly members Joann Downey, Eric Houghtaling and Greg McGuckin.  Passed back in 2009, the law requires motorists to move over when tow trucks, emergency services and law enforcement are on the shoulder.  The following year State Trooper Marc Castellano was struck & killed while walking on the shoulder of Route 195 in Howell.  It is hard to determine how many lives the law has saved but despite it there are many police officers being struck while conducting stops on our roadways.

Please be aware when you see flashing lights on the side of the road, slow down and move over to another lane if you can.  This will help keep everyone safe and it may save you from a fine and getting 2 points put on your driver's license.  DRIVE SAFE & KEEP EVERYONE SAFE!
