In Galloway Township, police have kicked off a month-long campaign to educate drivers about New Jersey's expanded 'Move Over' law. The law, which previously applied only to first responders and road crews, now includes all disabled vehicles using emergency flashers or other warning indicators.

Officers are stationed on Route 30, reminding drivers to either pull over or slow down when they encounter disabled vehicles with flashing lights. This initiative comes in the wake of a recent incident in Connecticut, where a state trooper was killed on a highway during a traffic stop.

Shani Jarvis of AAA Northeast supports the expansion of the law, citing the 41 deaths recorded between 2017 and 2021 in New Jersey of people killed while attending to a disabled vehicle.
