Fairfield – Law Promoted After Highway Crash
Yesterday, Fairfield officials reminded the public of the “Move Over Law.”
The campaign is being led by various state agencies in response to the incident on I-95 last week where a state trooper was seriously injured after his cruiser was hit by a private vehicle whose driver seemingly failed to identify the highway emergency. Other incidents related to this law have occurred in the past, and according to officials, many motorists are still unaware of this. Authorities are reminding everyone to slow down, give way to, and avoid emergency vehicles on all roads, allowing crews to perform their duties in critical situations.
Following this campaign is important because it highlights how laws in the state are designed to promote safety on all roads. We should also be aware of our legal rights and options as motorists or pedestrians in case we or our loved ones are ever involved in any road incident.
