PHOENIX -- The Arizona Department of Transportation and the Department of Public Safety have a message for drivers: Move over.

In an effort to keep emergency responders, highway crews and stranded motorists safe along highways, the two agencies have launched a statewide campaign to raise awareness about the "Move Over" law.

National statistics show that one tow truck driver is killed about every six days and an average of one law enforcement officer and 23 highway workers are killed every month by drivers who don't move over or slow down.

Arizona's law requires all drivers to move over one lane, or slow down and use caution if changing lanes isn't possible when traveling past any vehicle with flashing lights that's pulled to the side of the roadway.
