What is included in the NJ Move Over Law?

This law requires drivers to reduce speed to less than the posted speed limit; be prepared to stop; and make a lawful lane change to at least one lane away from law enforcement vehicles, fire trucks and ambulances, and in some cases, tow trucks. Violators would face a maximum $500 fine.

On Monday May 1st, 2017, Govenor Chris Christie signed “Michael Massey’s Law,” which is named for Michael Massey, a Freehold man who was killed when he was hit by a car while performing sanitation worker duties in Ocean Township.

The amended law now includes sanitation workers because of the bill, sponsored by Sen. Jennifer Beck, R-Monmouth.
