As we all know, being a first responder to the scene of an accident can be a very dangerous job, and in today's busy and tech-distracted society, it is not getting any easier. However, there are things we can do as private citizens to make their job a little bit safer on the roads of Visalia, CA and beyond.

If you have been driving for any length of time, you have more than likely seen police officers on a traffic stop. The traffic stop is dangerous by itself depending on the reason for the stop, but imagine the dangers the motorist and officer face with vehicles flying by them. If you follow the Slow Down and Move Over law, it becomes a whole lot safer for the people involved. Simply put, it means that you must slow down and change lanes when you approach an emergency vehicle, roadside crew, or any vehicle with its hazard lights illuminated. If you can't change lanes due to heavy traffic, you must at least slow down.

At our dealership, we feel that our first responders and roadside crews have dangerous jobs. Let's look out for them and our fellow citizens by observing these important laws. Be safe out there and drive courteously around others.
