Changes to New York's "Move Over Law" are set to take effect on March 27.
The law, which previously focused on emergency vehicles, will now encompass all stopped vehicles.
Under the expanded law, drivers will be required to take precautions such as slowing down and moving over for any stopped vehicle on the road. This amendment aims to enhance safety measures and reduce accidents involving stationary vehicles.
Governor's data reveals a pressing need for this expansion, citing 37 fatalities between 2016 and 2020 involving individuals outside disabled vehicles in New York.
