Senator Diane Allen (R-Burlington) and Senator Anthony Bucco (R-Morris) announced plans to introduce legislation renaming “The New Jersey Move Over Law” in memory of New Jersey State Police Trooper Sean Cullen, a Cinnaminson High School graduate, who was killed on March 7 while responding to a motor vehicle crash in West Deptford.

“Trooper Cullen’s death is a stark reminder of the tremendous risk he and all emergency responders face as they work to protect their communities from harm,” Senator Allen said. “Law enforcement officers are especially vulnerable working in or around busy streets, intersections and highways, such as southbound 295, where Sean tragically lost his life. It is imperative that motorists be made aware of their presences.”

Enacted in 2009, the “Move Over Law” requires drivers to reduce speeds, move over one lane and be prepared to stop when approaching an authorized emergency service vehicle or tow truck that is displaying flashing or blinking lights. Violators face a maximum $500 fine. Senators Allen and Bucco’s bill renaming the law in memory of State Police Trooper Cullen will be introduced in the New Jersey Senate on Monday, March 14.

“As an original sponsor of the New Jersey Move Over Law, it is truly a privilege for me to join Senator Allen in this important effort to honor Trooper Cullen,” Senator Bucco said. “Sean was a beloved brother, devoted son, and a soon-to-be husband and father to an infant son. It is my hope that renaming this law in his memory will raise awareness of this critical, lifesaving legislation, so that no other family ever has to bear such a devastating loss.”
