    Not that I'm doubting you, but what is the section? According to http://www.moveoveramerica.com/ NYS is one of 3 states (Hawaii and Maryland are the other 2) that do not have a "move over" law. Of course, Washington DC doesn't as well... This site appears to be pretty up to date (2009) with our neighbors in NJ, MA, CT as some of the few to enact the law in 2009.

    That is another topic, but I had a Class A license with an X endorsement for years and can agree it is far too easy to obtain a driver's license.

    We've had it as law in MS for a few years now and I'm glad to see MHP take after some idiots on the interstate on quite a few occasions. My cheif threw his flashlight and broke a guy's windshield one night as he was flying through an accident scene. The guy stopped and was quickly cuffed after he tried to start something. I got to say that was a close call for everyone that night.

    Thanks. It was poorly worded, but I think you know what I meant. With all the testing that goes towards a commercial license there are few real requirements for the average driver.
