HUNTINGTON STATION - The state law that requires drivers to move into the next lane for stopped police and emergency vehicles has been expanded to include stopped tow trucks and other highway workers. Drivers are required to slow down and to move over, when it's a safe possibility, to give extra room for stopped workers. Tow truck workers are heralding the law's expansion. Some tell News 12 Long Island that it's incredibly frightening to be working in dark conditions on the side of the road while drivers zip past at high speeds. Some drivers, however, say the law just isn't realistic. They worry that scooting over on short notice could cause accidents.The new law goes into effect on Jan. 1.Police crack down on drivers who fail to 'move over'Driver charged in LIE crash that killed copNew law aims to protect officers who pull drivers over
