Move Over or Slow Down

Failure of motorists to move over or slow down is one of the leading reasons motor vehicle crashes kill more law enforcement officers on duty than anything else. Rock County Sheriff’s Sergeant Chris Krahn says it’s important for drivers to move over or slow down when they see emergency flashing lights along the road. Krahn says Wisconsin law requires drivers provide a “safety zone” for stopped law enforcement, emergency, and maintenance vehicles with their emergency or warning lights activated. Saturday is national move over day.
