Move Over Law
39:4-92.2 Procedure for motorist approaching stationary
authorized emergency vehicle, tow truck, highway maintenance or emergency
This is the new law that requires drivers to veer away
(to an outer lane) from police cars and other emergency vehicles stopped
on the side of a road. If moving to an outer lane is not possible, motorists
are required to slow down below the speed limit and be prepared to stop.
The purpose of this program is to empower the local, private, and corporate
with the knowledge and ability to assist law enforcement. Civilians can
assist by identifying observed criminal or terrorist behaviors, and alerting
law enforcement. This information is then entered into the Statewide Intelligence
Management System (SIMS). The SIMS database is used to collect and share
information on suspected involvement in all types of criminal activity.
SIMS allows agencies to store intelligence for their own use or for the
use of the broader law enforcement community.
