New York’s Move Over Law requires drivers who are nearing a construction site, the scene of an accident, or any other situation where work or emergency vehicles have their lights on to reduce their speed and, if possible, change lanes. 

The law is in effect no matter which side of the roadway the official vehicle has stopped. Infractions of this law are penalized with two points on the offender’s driver’s license and an administrative fine of as much as $150.
