New Jersey DOT Installs Highway Safety Signs

More than two dozen signs will be installed along New Jersey highways to encourage compliance with the Move Over law.

The New Jersey Department of Transportation is adding 26 new signs to its highways, encouraging drivers to abide by the Move Over law.

The law, passed in honor of a New Jersey state trooper who was hit and killed by a vehicle standing outside his patrol car on a highway, encourages drivers to move over a lane or slow down if an emergency vehicle with flashing lights is pulled over to the shoulder.

While the Move Over law was passed in 2009, driver awareness is low. Drivers who violate this law could receive fines ranging anywhere from $100 to $500. More than 1,800 summons were issued to drivers for violating this law last year.
