CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire State Police are urging drivers to not cause additional crashes by being careless approaching disabled vehicles this winter.

Officials say state police cruisers responding to crashes in hazardous weather have been struck by other cars, despite being off to the side of the road with their emergency lights activated.

They’re reminding drivers of the state’s so-called “move over” law, which requires drivers to slow down and take other steps when approaching any emergencies, including crashes, or police vehicles involved in traffic stops.
