Crash Responder Safety Week is Nov. 14-18

Posted on November 9, 2022

November 14-18, 2022 is Crash Responder Safety Week. Every day, responders risk life and limb to help drivers out on the road, and each year, hundreds of these individuals are struck, and many are killed, by negligent, distracted, and impatient drivers. Please join us this week in raising awareness concerning the dangers these individuals face every time they stop to help our fellow travelers.

All of us can help save lives by moving over a lane or slowing down when there is an emergency vehicle stopped on the side of the road or in a travel lane. In addition to being the right thing to do, moving over is also the law. Pennsylvania and New Jersey both have Move Over Laws, which require motorists to Move Over or slow down to provide a buffer for the people who work to keep our roadways safe.

Learn more about Crash Responders Safety Week on the Transportation Systems Management and Operations webpage, and follow and share DVRPC’s posts on social media throughout the week to raise awareness. Learn about Traffic Incident Management in the DVRPC region.
