Edmonton, Alberta -- April 8, 2014 -- An Alberta-based tower has started a petition to improve roadside safety for tow truck operators across the province.

"I want to get the word out to everyone to slow down and move over, because we all want to get home safely to our families," says Cliff Bullis, the architect of the petition and a tow truck operator with Jays Towing Services in Edmonton. "It's hard to say why some people don't follow the province's move over law, maybe they don't know it exists."

Move over laws require motorists to slow down on the road when approaching emergency vehicles--police, firefighters, paramedics, towers--and veer towards the opposite side to allow those operators the space to perform their duties safely.
