New York Is Serious About The 'Move Over' Law

New York's "move over" law applies when motorists fail to move over for emergency vehicles. New York police enforce the law and issue hundreds of tickets each year.

Conviction for violating the law can result in 2 points on your license and a fine. Drivers sometimes are also ticketed for:

  • Failure to yield the right of way (3 points)
  • Improper passing (3 points)
  • Unsafe lane change (3 points)
  • Reckless driving (5 points)
  • Speeding (3 to 11 points)

Receiving 11 points within 18 months can result in the New York Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) suspending your license.

Move over cases often have extenuating circumstances, such as the danger of moving over while driving in heavy traffic. Traffic violation attorney Jack Kotchick can help you fight move over charges.
