Move Over Says Cal Trans

Big Bear, Ca July 13, 2011 1:00 pm – Starting today, drivers are being reminded to “Move Over” when they see the flashing lights of CHP, CalTrans, and other emergency vehicles.  Although the law requiring motorists to move over a lane when the flashing lights of an emergency vehicle are seen has been in place for a while, CalTrans workers in Southern California have been struck and killed on the job in 3 separate incidents recently.  The cluster of fatalities is prompting a statewide campaign to educate motorists about the law.  To raise public awareness, billboards are planned, announcements on television will be aired, and over 700 highway signs will be flashing the message, “Slow or Move Over for Workers, It’s the Law.” More information is available at:  http://www.dot.ca.gov/moveover/ [audio:http://kbhr933.com/wp-content/uploads/SP30895.mp3|titles=Move Over Says CalTrans and...
