BY KIRK CALDWELL – I believe that as a community we should support the passage of House Bill 2070, requiring motorists to move over at least one lane and get out of any lane occupied by a police, fire, or emergency response vehicle.
I urge my former colleagues to pass this bill. I would also ask that consideration be given to road maintenance workers and construction crews, who also expose their lives to speeding vehicles along our roadways. Saving one life is more precious than saving a few minutes. We all need to slow down and do the right thing.
