drivers urged to move over and slow down

towMore than one tow truck operator is killed every week by motorists on American highways. To honor the men and women who have lost their lives during service, Allstate Roadside Services and the International Towing and Recovery Hall of Fame and Museum (ITRHFM) launched the “Provider Safety Advocacy” campaign to raise awareness of Move Over laws.

As part of the national campaign, Allstate and the ITRHFM created an online public service announcement (PSA) entitled “Move Over, Slow Down” to showcase the impact that Move Over laws can have on individuals both on and off the road. Featuring families who have lost loved ones as a result of motorists not slowing down or moving over when it mattered most, the emotional PSA reveals the lasting impact one moment in time can have when a motorist is distracted.

To help families of the fallen in their time of need, Allstate is encouraging individuals to make a donation to the Survivor Fund on the ITRHFM website (www.thesurvivorfund.com). Donations will be matched up to $25,000 through Nov. 30.
