HOW TO AVOID CRASHING INTO TROOPERS
Slow down, move over and look where you want to go.
SLOW DOWN – BEFORE YOU GET NEAR THE CRASH SITE
You should be going under the posted speed limit to begin with. DO NOT brake suddenly when you are near the crash.
MOVE OVER – IF IT IS CLEAR AND SAFE TO DO SO
If you can’t move over a whole lane, don’t panic – move as far to the left or right in your lane as possible and slow down.
DO NOT BRAKE SUDDENLY
That can cause you to slide into the cars stopped on the shoulder.
LOOK WHERE YOU WANT TO GO – NOT AT THE VEHICLES ON THE SHOULDER
Focus on the road and look at the path you want to follow.
MOVE FENDER BENDERS OFF THE FREEWAY
The road shoulder is dangerous – even when roads are dry.
This happens every winter. Please, help keep your Trooper safe – SLOW DOWN, MOVE OVER.
