This Saturday, October 16th, is National Move Over Day. This is an important day for local law enforcement, fire departments, emergency medical services, Department of Transportation, and tow truck operators, not to mention the families of all of the aforementioned.
National Move Over Day means just that, move the hell over! It's amazing how many people didn't learn this in driver's ed. When you see a tow truck or any emergency vehicle pulled over to the side of the road, it is your responsibility to slow down and move over.
At least one tow truck driver is killed every 6 days in the U.S. because someone did not move over.
You might see a parade on Saturday that will take off from the HAPO Center in Pasco at approximately 3 pm. The parade will be full of tow truck operators, roadside assistance personnel, and police, fire, and EMS along with anyone else who wants to help bring awareness to Scott's Law. Scott's law is named after Lieutenant Scott Gillen of the Chicago Fire Department who was struck and killed by a drunk driver while responding to a crash in December of 2000. Scott's Law is simple, move over.
