Every motorist should remember to abide by the law, Slow Down, and Move Over. This rule has gone through many changes over time, with more vehicles being added to the cars covered by this law.
This road safety rule is straightforward and easy to understand. It ensures the safety of workers who have to park their cars on or at the side of the road. Vehicles covered in this legislation, not only includes police vehicles and ambulances but it includes tow trucks, garbage collectors, utility workers among others.
Several cases have been reported of where the operators of said vehicles have been involved in accidents which lead to their injuries and sometimes death. We would like to reiterate to all motorists to slow down as they approach such vehicles, on the road.
If you are on the road with multiple lanes, then, move over and give the operators enough room to continue with their business or services. Let us be aware on the roads as road safety begins with each person.
