Tri-Cities community comes together for ‘National Move Over Awareness Day’

Slow Down Move Over Awareness Day

TRI-CITIES, Wash. — Community members from the Tri-Cities got together Saturday afternoon to spread the message that drivers need to slow down and move over when vehicles are on the side of the road.

A few dozen tow trucks and representatives from local law enforcement and fire agencies caravanned along SR 240 and U.S. Route 395 around 4:00 p.m. Saturday.

Trooper Thorson from Washington State Patrol Tweeted a video Saturday reminding the public to move over a lane or to slow down when people are working on the side of the road.
