Today, November 9th through Sunday November 15th is National Traffic Incident Response Awareness Week.
Every year hundreds of emergency responders representing fire, law enforcement, emergency medical services, towing and transportation agencies are struck and either injured or killed while responding to and operating at roadway incidents.
Pennsylvania has passed "Move Over" laws, which require motorists to move over and change lanes to provide a safe distance for emergency responders operating on the roadway. Unfortunately, a majority of drivers do not know to move over and slow down when then they see responders working on the roadways.
