Expect to get lots of reminders about the need to move over when you are approaching emergency vehicles… or any vehicle with flashing lights… on the side of the road.

The “Give Them Distance” safety campaign will seek to increase public awareness about the expanded state law that requires drivers to change lanes when any vehicle with emergency or hazard lights is on the shoulder.

The campaign takes on added significance in the Springfield area, where a tow truck driver was killed just last week as he was working on a disabled vehicle.
