The Importance of Moving Over While Driving

When you are driving and see a car parked in the shoulder, the right thing to do is to get over into another lane to give the parked car more space. Failing to move over is a bigger problem than you might think.

Every year, an unfortunately large number of road workers and police officers are killed because of careless drivers. When people don't move over, they are driving at a very fast speed very close to the shoulder. All it takes is a tiny accidental jerk of the steering wheel and a speeding car can find itself in the shoulder.

Don't put yourself or others in danger. If you see a car parked in the shoulder, move over. If it seems like it isn't possible to get over, slow down to 15 mph below the speed limit. If you have any questions, give us a call. Our staff would love to help you out.
