BLUMENTHAL’S BI-PARTISAN RESOLUTION PROTECTS ALL FIRST RESPONDERS & ROAD SAFETY Reducing road dangers means stronger laws touted by Blumenthal’s bi-partisan resolution Resolution is inspired by Corey Iodice, a Connecticut tow truck operator, struck and killed while assisting a driver [Hartford, CT]- THURSDAY, August 11, 2022 at 11 AM in New Haven, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) will join law enforcement, members of the Iodice family, AAA and traffic safety advocates to announce a bi-partisan resolution to raise awareness of Slow Down, Move Over state laws to reduce struck-by-vehicle injuries and fatalities, and to recognize the important role law enforcement, fire and rescue, emergency medical services, tow truck operators, and transportation workers play in road safety.
