'We risk our lives daily': Tow truck drivers urge people to follow the Move Over Law (Video)
By Angelina Salcedo, WTSP
Thousands of us drive past it every day. Rogelio Perez-Borroto's memorial on Interstate 275 north is a reminder to move over and slow down. “He was off helping somebody who broke down on the bridge. On his way home from work, he lost his life,” fellow tow truck driver Mike McDonald said. McDonald says sadly Rogelio isn't the only one. Tow truck drivers risk their lives daily. …That's why FDOT enforces the Move Over Law. January is the “Move Over Month.” Drivers have to move over if they see flashing lights on the side of the road.
