CAA conducts Slow Down Move Over promotion
The Canadian Automobile Association will conduct a promotion on May 14 called “Slow Down Move Over Day.” The initiative encourages drivers to exercise extra caution when passing tow trucks on the side of the road. The campaign is intended to educate consumers about the risks faced by tow truck operators. The effort includes an online video in which tow truck operators describe their personal experiences.
“Lack of driver awareness is one of the largest threats to tow-truck operator safety on this day and all others,” said Jeff Walker, chief strategy officer at the CAA. “Everyone should slow down and move over when they see a tow truck operator on the side of the road, whether there is a law in place in their jurisdiction or not.”
