Slowing Down and Moving Over

With so many vehicles on the road as commuters travel to and from work, to relatives' houses during the holidays, or as they hit the road for a joyride, there is bound to be an emergency.

We at Bert Ogden Hyundai knows that when drivers approach an emergency, either an accident or a vehicle pulled over on the shoulder, there is liable to be traffic.

This is due to drivers slowing down to view the scene. One of the safe by-products of this is that with reduced speeds there is less fatal accidents involving law enforcement and emergency responders.

When we notice vehicles pulled over to the shoulder it is best practice to remind yourself that there may be a person unaware of your approaching vehicle and may stray in its path. It would be advantageous for you to slow down and move a lane over to give as much space as possible. This way you ensure their safety as they attend to the matter at hand.
