Starting January 1st, drivers could be looking at some heavy fines if they don't obey the new law.
This new law now means that drivers will have to slow down for tow trucks and other maintenance vehicles when they are out on the job.
For one tow truck driver, this means he will not have to be fearful when working on the roads.
"It's a problem, it's scary out there a lot of times, especially at night," said tow truck driver, Tony Sacco.
"Whether its maintenance, or whether it's removing vehicles that have been in some type of crash, drivers are expected to slow down and if it's safe and legal to do so, they have to pull as far away from that scene as possible," said Capt. Coots with the New York State Police.
Capt. Coots says there are still specific instructions for drivers when approaching all these types of vehicles.
He says drivers need to slow down but it doesn't mean they are asking them to get into the opposite lane to jeopardize other people's safety on the road.
And for those who don't slow down, they can expect to cough up over $200 and get three points on their license.
Capt. Coots also says this new change applies to all roads in New York State.
