Move Over Laws Protect Roadside Workers

If you have ever had a flat on the interstate, then you know how dangerous working on the side of the road can be. Every year millions of people die in traffic accidents, thousands of them while operating on the side of the road. It is estimated that over 200 of these fatalities are road workers.

Tow truck drivers, emergency personnel, and police officers risk their lives on the highway every day. Fortunately there are laws that try to prevent this.

Most people are unaware that there is a move over law in place to protect all roadside workers. Whenever an emergency vehicle is parked by the side of the road drivers are required to change lanes. This protects both driver and worker from a serious accident. At Riverhead Toyota we respect all our roadside workers and value their service. So please spread the word and help us keep them safe.
