These are great videos to provide information to the motoring public, but this video, like many others, show tow operators standing, working and laying on the traffic side as traffic passes dangerously by. The needed culture change isn't with slow down and move-over, the change has to come from towers choosing NOT work the white-line side. There's nothing wrong with making a minimum tie-down so to drive to a safer location and complete tie-down because lessons learned has demonstrated the dangers of working the traffic side.    R.

I agree with Mr. Resch.  We all want the working space to be respected by motorists, but safety and common sense seem like factors that we will never be able to work without.  It's been a few years since I was driving every day, but in traffic situations, I always kept my vision on potential hazards, and only when I was convinced that I could look away long enough to throw on a strap, would I do that.  I don't have enough examples in my recent experience to state that it's becoming less common to keep your head up, but I have noticed a few times as I passed tow trucks recently that the driver does not look up at all, and will step into the traffic lane while working.  I know we're all supposed to slow down and move over, but I wouldn't be that confident in my fellow motorists.  It's getting better, and public promotion of slow down/move over is helping, for sure, as well as new laws being passed.  I just think it's always wise to stay away from the traffic as much as possible and self-protect.  Get to a safe spot and finish up.
