Woman Gets 28 Years for Killing a Tow Truck Driver



 STORY HERE

Will this case set a standard in the future?
There has to be a reckoning and although this ruling
seems harsh there has to be justice for the victim -
Tow truck driver, Roger Perez-Borroto who left
behind a wife and 4 year old daughter. 





More attention needs to be given to the
MOVE OVER Law, so we get it and it
becomes second nature to get out of the way, just as
we would for a police car, fire truck or ambulance.



MOVE OVER, IT SAVES LIVES 

Bringing awareness to our community, to
our industry

Tow Lives Matter

Tow Lives Matter

When we leave our homes day or night
to stay alive is our fight
our job claims a life a week
as safety we all seek

Our lives revolve around a thin line
same as life yours and mine
so brothers and sisters all stand tall
for we have seen it all

Cars up a pole or in a lake
all are chances that we take
when we are loading on a deck
or rushing to a wreck

Never knowing which breath will be our last
or if we will die going to fast
we don't see the future my friend
or know when life will end
 - Willard Meehan

a reminder of just how fleeting life can be - for you and me.

Falling Asleep at the Wheel



Are you getting ready for a summer vacation, please stay alert on the road!
 

Sleep deprivation or fatigue is equal to a .08 alcohol level.  
From 2009 - 2012, there's been an increase in fatal crashes involving large trucks.

The only way to protect yourself is to be overly aware while on the road and
learning a few defensive driving tactics to keep you safe.

 Some things to be on the lookout for:
  • Turning with a wide radius.
  • Straddling the center of the road or lane marker
  • Almost striking an object or other vehicle.
  • Weaving or zigzagging across the road.
  • Driving on other than a designated roadway.
  • Swerving or abruptly turning away from a generally straight course.
  • Turning abruptly or illegally.
  • Driving slower than 10 mph below speed limit.
  • Stopping without cause in a traffic lane.
  • Stopping inappropriately (other than in lane).
  • Drifting or moving in a straight-line at a slight angle to the roadway.
  • Erratic braking.
  • Driving into opposing or crossing traffic.
  • Signaling that is inconsistent with driving actions.
  • Slow response to traffic signals (sudden stop, delayed start).

May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month





MOTORCYCLE SAFETY AWARENESS MONTH


·         Road users should never drive, bike, or walk while distracted.  Doing so can result in tragic consequences for everyone on the road, including motorcyclists.
·         A motorcyclist has the same rights, privileges, and responsibilities as any other motorist on the roadway.
·         Allow a motorcyclist a full lane width. Though it may seem as if there is enough room in a single lane for a motor vehicle and a motorcycle, looks can be deceiving. Do not share the lane: a motorcyclist needs room to maneuver safely.  
·         Because motorcycles are smaller than most vehicles, they can be difficult to see. Their size can also cause other drivers to misjudge their speed and distance.
·         Size also counts against motorcycles when it comes to blind spots. Motorcyclists can be easily hidden in a vehicle’s blind spot. Always look for motorcycles by checking your mirrors and blind spots before switching to another lane of traffic.
·         Always signal your intentions before changing lanes or merging with traffic. This allows motorcyclists to anticipate your movement and find a safe lane position.
·         Don’t be fooled by a flashing turn signal on a motorcycle—it may not be self-canceling and the motorcyclist may have forgotten to turn it off. Wait to be sure the rider is going to turn before you proceed.
·         Allow more distance – three or four seconds – when following a motorcycle; this gives the motorcycle rider more time to maneuver or stop in an emergency. Motorcycle riders may suddenly need to change speed or adjust lane position to avoid hazards such as potholes, gravel, wet or slippery surfaces, pavement seams, railroad crossings, and grooved pavement.
