California: Give Tow Truck Drivers a Break

How many of us change lanes when we see a tow truck, Caltrans vehicle or police car parked alongside the road? How many of us know that's the right thing to do?

One tow truck driver sent this plea. We forwarded it to the CHP for some practical advice as well as "the letter of the law." We are a local tow company, and lately we have noticed drivers driving dangerous around us while we are working on the sides of the roads. California has the "move over law," but no one knows it nor do they obey it. Kind of a joke. The fine is only $50 and the carpool lane violation is over $300.
