Niagara County Sheriff Jim Voutour issued a press release this afternoon reminding drivers to move over for emergency vehicles at the side of the road following a Newfane man being charged with DWI while allegedly almost hitting a deputy on Lockport-Olcott Road.

Sheriff's Deputy Patrick Tighe said he just missed being struck by a car driven by Shawn P. Robison, 2720 Beebe Road, while completing another traffic stop late Friday night.

The New York State Ambrose Searles Move Over Law came into effect on Jan. 1, 2011 to protect law enforcement and emergency workers. An addition was made to the law in 2012 to include amber light vehicles such as highway vehicles and tow operators. When approaching these vehicles that are "stopped, parked or standing" on the shoulder of a roadway, drivers are required to reduce speed and move to an open lane if it is safe to do so. Penalties for a violation of this law include 3 points and a minimum $275 fine.
