Slow Down and Move Over in Snohomish, WA

Did you know that there is a law called slow down and move over? It is actually a law in all the States, and it is designed to keep people safe. 71% of Americans have not heard of the law. What it means is that if you are driving and see a tow truck driver on the side of the road helping a stranded motorist, or a police officer on a traffic stop, you are required to slow down and change lanes.

The reason this law was developed was due to the 200 average fatalities to roadside workers every year, and over 150 law enforcement officers have lost their lives since 1997. The key to this law is designed to save lives.

Here at Bickford Ford, we know people do not intend to hurt people when they get under the steering wheel. If you see flashing lights on the side of the road, slow down first and then if it is safe to change lanes, it could save lives in the local Snohomish area!
