USE COMMON COURTESY AND SLOW DOWN OR MOVE OVER WHEN YOU SEE A DISABLED VEHICLE ON THE ROADSIDE

For years police had dash cams, then came body cams, now dash cams are available to the public and sales have skyrocketed. These dash cams have proven who has been at fault in a crash, captured crashes and protected the motorist who owned it from false allegations many times. The same for Lauren Caudle who was northbound on I-45 near Loop 336 this morning. As she was southbound her dashcam captured a crash that could have been quite serious. A vehicle was broken down on the shoulder with a flat tire. The stranded motorists wife pulled in a short distance in front of her husband. It was then a vehicle left the roadway and slammed into the rear of the disabled vehicle, pushing it into traffic. The striking vehicle continued in a forward motion and struck the disabled motorists wife’s vehicle. There were no major injuries. The driver of the disabled vehicle who was out of his vehicle had a slight injury to his leg. State Law says that motorists must slow down or move over for police, wreckers, or construction vehicles on the side of the roadway. They have yet to put in a provision for vehicles broken down on the side of the road. Many drivers do it as a common courtesy, but the vast majority just blow by without regard to the person attempting to change a tire or even get in or out of their vehicle.

    It really does need to be added to the law! I have seen so many accidents that could have been prevented if we all keep our eyes on the road. When you see someone broke down slow down and if possible then move over into the next lane. Put yourself in the same situation, wouldn’t you want other drivers to be respectful of you? I know that I would. Drive Safely!
