Move Over: It’s Now the Law

Most drivers know that when they see emergency lights in their rearview mirror, they need to pull over to the shoulder so the emergency vehicles can get past them. The reason for that is because someone’s life could be on the line. However, what most people fail to realize is that when they see a tow truck on the side of the road helping a broken down motorist, they are required to slow down and move over as well.

Now the reasoning for that is to protect the tow truck driver. A lot of times they are required to work on towing and hooking up a vehicle to the truck, and it could be dangerous. Just like when driving through a construction zone, motorists are required to slow down and change lanes. Otherwise, you can be fined. Here at our dealership, we just want you and all people on the San Jose roadways to be safe.
