Traffic incidents create unsafe situations, put lives at risk, and cause delays.

Know your role:

  1. Move your car to a safe place – out of the travel lanes – if you are involved in an incident, and there are no injuries.
  2. When you see flashing lights ahead of you, you need to slow down and/or move over. You can be ticketed for failing to do this!
  3. Help keep your loved ones safe and avoid a ticket. Tell your friends and family about these laws.
