A tow truck driver’s Facebook video shows just how dangerous her job is by demonstrating how many drivers fail to move over.
The video was shared by Hillbilly Towing’s Facebook page. Hillbilly Towing writes: “Another video from the wife’s tow company Lotus Girl Towing! She posts these to spread awareness about the MOVE OVER LAW & the fact that more towers are killed than all other emergency response personnel combined yearly. Yesterday another tower was killed while working a wreck on a highway. Please remember we have a MOVE OVER LAW.”
In Tennessee, where the video was recorded, the Move Over Law, “requires motorists to move over into the adjacent lane of traffic, when safe to do so, or alternatively to slow down for emergency vehicles. In 2011, the law was expanded to include utility service equipment to the list of vehicles for which motorists are required to either slow down or move over.” You can click here for more information on the Move Over Law from the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security.
