Drivers Will Have to be More Careful

(4/18/14) Wisconsin drivers will have to be more careful, under a bill Governor Scott Walker signed this week.  

Utility workers were added to the list of those that motorists must move over and slow down for.  Bill Skewes of the Wisconsin Utility Association says it will make electric and water employees safer when they're making roadside repairs.  Wisconsin's "Move Over" law was first adopted a few years ago, after a rash of law enforcement officers were killed on the Milwaukee freeways while investigating crashes or stopping motorists.  Besides police officers, motorists have also been required to slow down and accommodate fire personnel, towing, and construction vehicles
