Motorists Urged To Move Over For Emergency Vehicles

Move over for Emergency Vehicles With Flashing Lights. That’s the admonition of 10th District State Assemblyman Jim Holzapfel.

Holzapfel is the Primary Sponsor of New Jersey’s Move Over Law (A1179)  that passed in the State Legislature and became law in 2009.

In a press release, Holzapfel says “too many accidents happen when speeding cars sideswipe emergency vehicles stopped on the side of the road, putting both drivers and emergency responders at risk.”

The mother of a New Jersey State Trooper came into the Bob Levy Broadcast Center recently to tell us why New Jersey’s Move Over Law is so important. Donna Setaro of Forked River, who’s the mother of the late State Trooper Marc Castellano, told us her son was struck and killed by a motorist who barreled onto an I-195 exit ramp in Howell Township last year during a police investigation and fatally struck her son who was standing in the shoulder.

She’s made it her mission to tell driver’s education students and teens about New Jersey’s new Move Over Law. She said she was hoping to help keep other families from going through what she and her family has and has started the M.A.R.C Campaign named after her son and stands for Move Over Awareness Campaign.

The Law requires motorist to slow down and if possible get into the next lane when there’s a First Responder with flashing lights off to the side of the road, that includes Police, Fire, Ambulances, EMS, Tow Truck Operators and even Construction Workers.
