There was a discussion about the “move over” law. It has been expanded to cover tow trucks. A tow truck operator (Jim from Emeril Towing) discussed actual incidents where workers have been injured or killed. If you can’t get over you’re required to slow to 20 mph under the limit.

We spoke with Andrew after the event to see if we could get better notice of events in the park and the impacts from them including sound and traffic. We are hopeful that we will be able to provide better information to our readers in the near future.
