Keep our first responders safe

Every day, first responders put their lives on the line on our nation’s roads. Police officers, fire and rescue workers, tow truck drivers and emergency technicians perform their jobs within a few feet of speeding vehicles. And every six days, one of these responders loses his/her life tending to a disabled vehicle.

Do your part to keep our first responders safe by following the slow down, move over laws in every state. The message is simple:

When approaching an emergency vehicle with its lights illuminated, drivers must slow down and, if possible, move to the adjacent lane.

Taking this action gives first responders more room in which to work and keeps everyone safer. While police are doing more to enforce these laws, it’s the responsibility of every individual driver to stay alert and follow the law.
