While it shouldn't be necessary, after observing how some people drive, it unfortunately is. The writing can't be any more obvious and clear. It is designed to create more awareness of the "Move over, Slow Down" law which is in all 50 states.

While the law varies from state to state, in New York it goes like this:

"Drivers traveling in the same direction must exercise due care, include moving from a lane immediately adjacent, and reducing speed, to avoid colliding with a vehicle parked, stopped, or standing on the shoulder or any portion of the highway when the vehicle is an authorized emergency response, tow truck, or maintenance vehicle with its lights flashing."

Everyone get it now? This law not only applies to police cars and ambulances. If there is a vehicle on the side of the road with lights flashing, slow down and merge into the left lane whenever possible.
