Slow Down Move Over
Across North America, nearly 100 tow truck drivers are killed every year after being struck by oncoming traffic while helping stranded motorists with flat tires, breakdowns and collisions. CAA urges motorists to make space for tow trucks working on the side of the road through Canada’s first national Slow Down Move Over Day.
CAA has long advocated for the protection of roadside assistance workers through Slow Down, Move Over legislation. This year, CAA Clubs across Canada have designated May 14 as Slow Down Move Over day to bring attention to this important issue.
CAA Clubs across Canada will be launching public education campaigns and events to draw attention to the safety risks tow truck operators face.
