As of January 1, 2012 the Ambrose-Searles "Move Over" Law (section 1144a of NYS Vehicle & Traffic Law) has been updated to include tow and service vehicle operators and other maintenance workers stopped along roadways while performing their duties.
New York's Division of State Police have a statement about the changes on their website along with a downloadable brochure linked to below. The 1144a is still punishable by a fine and 3 points.
