National highway traffic safety administration has noticed it market spike and first responders being hit by vehicles while they're responding tonto traffic events on the side of the road.

Um letting things does include some people who, you know, having car trouble maybe hadn't stopped for some reason.

And so what?

They're asking people asking us to do is to go out.

Remind everyone the community if there is an issue on the side of the road, russian people to immediately slow down.

Don't slam on your brakes, but just slow your speed.

Move over if you can.

If you can't that's fine.

Just slows to a safe speed and then switch to elaine.

That's not immediately adjacent to the emergency vehicle.

If you can.

Um i said, if you can't, um.

You know if you can't move over because it's not say if you have enough room in the lane, if you can't switch lanes, that's fine, but that's the ideal situation.

But people don't know this.

This was actually a law signed in a few years ago, and there are penalties if you don't do that.

So just just reminded coming up to $200 fine.

And this is a law all over the country.

The last law was adopted in ohio and 2017.
