Are You Aware Of Move Over Laws?

Breaking down on the side of a busy highway is a scary and dangerous event. Cars are dashing by you, just a few feet away, at tremendous speed. Common courtesy would suggest that traffic should pull over and away from the sidelined vehicle but what 71% of people according to a national poll by Mason Dixon Polling & Research, sponsored by the National Safety Commission don't know is moving over exists as a law in all 50 states.

Tow truck drivers, law enforcement officers, and roadside workers are at risk every day when on the highways and roadways just doing their jobs:

  • National Traffic Incident Management Coalition states 200 roadside workers die on the job by roadside traffic incidents.
  • The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund sites that over 150 officers have been killed on our roadsides since 1997.

Be aware when on the roadway that other's safety depends on your safe driving habits.
