AAA Aiming to Protect Tow Truck Drivers and First Responders


Recommended Posts


Triple-A is launching a new campaign-- aimed at protecting Tow truck drivers and first responders. In Florida-- the law requires drivers to move over for law enforcement and paramedics – but many don't know it also applies to OTHER emergency vehicles stopped on the side of the road.

I commend the effort to raise awareness.  yet have issue with the appearance of Operator lack of situational awareness, lack to Traffic Control measure and addressing only 1 component of making the work space safer.   If we are really serious, Towers, Population, Service Vendors, Equipment Manufacturers and  Law Enforcement need to look at the best ROI to accomplish a safer environment without stopping traffic flow.  


The Risk Assessment- Probability, Severity and application of mitigation factors.


Yes, awareness is a component. But, they can't afford to deploy a traffic attenuator.
