Wash down slop is much more fun just let the drum trickle.

Tennessee also has the move over law. I always try and get over. In one instance I was in the RV and was moving at about 64 mph in the left lane and was passed by a Dumb--s in the right lane. He couldn't be bothered with slowing down or moving over. One of those times I wish I was driving an old klunker. It was a vehicle from Florida so he should have known about the move over law.

Like some of the other people on this form I drove Semi for a living
putting in a few million miles over 30 years with no preventable
accidents. I was told early on by many older drivers to always move
over just in case the vehicle on the side of the road be it the
local police HWY patrol, emergency vehicle or a private vehicle may pull out


Back then when I started there was no law that was in place
it was common sense to avoid a preventable accident. Yes if
you hit someone pulling off the shoulder in the eye's of a
company it is preventable because you could have either
slowed down or move over to prevent the accident.

If you have ever been driving down a HWY at 60mph
or faster you will get gun shy and see way ahead of
time you want to mover over. Same with a Bridge
overhead if you have ever had a brick come thought
you windshield you will always look at every bridge
you pass under.

I have had two bricks come thought a truck wind-
shield and I don't know how many people campers
included that have turned on their blinker and started
out on to the HWY that would have been in front of
me without even looking, Ugh.

Watch when you pass a on ramp, look when the people
in the vehicle getting on pay attention to the traffic
on the HWY. You can bet it won't be until they almost
run out of ramp before they look to see if it's clear.

So the next time you see a truck turn on his or her
(yes her) turn signal to move over for a vehicle parked
on the side of the road given them a break there is
a reason for such it's not to get in your way it's
called safety

Over the years I have watched something change on the part of law enforcement that puts them in danger and they just don't seem to care. It is the addition of cameras to their patrol cars. What now happens when an officer pulls someone over is that they pull in behind them and then just before stopping they turn their car to the left so that the camera mounted midship in the front window can 'see' along the side of the car in front. While it gives the camera a view of the drivers door ahead, and will record any hanky panky, it often puts the patrol cars front left fender over the line and actually in the road. This behavior also puts the officer in the road when he gets out of his car. See it every day, over and over. Wish they would spend the money for a second camera that can see along the car without forcing the officer to put his car in the road.

I thought that was to deflect a vehicle away from the officer and person in front of him, if a vehicle was to swerve towards them and crash into them.
I do the same thing (angle my vehicle towards the road) when pulling up to help someone, For my safety!

And 60 -70 mph doesn't seem that fast when driving, but fixing a blowout on the shoulder.....it seems really fast. I actually crawled under a trailer to jack a road side, axle up, to keep me out of traffic as much as possible. (It was a tri-axle, so i wasnt worried about trailer falling on me, but i couldn't pull off the sholder much, because i was hauling a big cab tractor and didn't want to tip the trailer pulling off too far)

I have noticed a change procedure here in Cali for the CHP when they stop a vehicle. The officer will walk up cautiously on the passenger or curb side of the vehicle and do their business. There was a new law put in place last year to move over or slow down when approaching vehicles on the shoulder.

We're Arizonans too, and we always either move over or slow down when we see anybody at the side of the road. We always have. We now know from personal experience (not dire, fortunately) how scary it is when people don't. Stay safe!

We also have that law in British Columbia.
A lot of people are not aware of it.

In GA IT IS THE LAW. Move over one lane. If you cannot, you better get down to 25mph. Several cases in the news where dual police cars at a scene. One taking care of BZ while the other is shooting; RADAR! You cannot escape these tickets in the mail!

We have a similar law in Arkansas. You are required to move to the left or reduce your speed.
