“Move Over” Law Violation Results in pileup

Last week, we posted a blog entry about the tremendous number of collisions that have occurred recently in the 40/440 workzone, many because of drivers speeding or texting in the area.  Today, the Goldsboro Daily News details a serious collision that occurred on I-795 Wednesday after a driver apparently violated the North Carolina “Move Over” law.

It is so important for drivers to recognize that a motor vehicle is not a toy.  It is a powerful machine, weighing thousands of pounds, and traveling fast.  Life is not a video game, folks.  Drive your car like you are operating a heavy piece of machinery that can hurt or kill people, because you are.
