Massachusetts State Police remind people to #MoveOver

Police officers have a higher risk of incurring a work-related injury or illness than most other occupations. On average, 115 police and sheriff’s patrol officers suffered fatal work injuries each year from 2003 to 2014. Another 30,990 nonfatal injuries involving days away from work were reported for police and sheriff’s patrol officers on average each year from 2009 to 2014.

“As a reminder to all drivers… It’s the law when approaching stopped emergency blue, red, or yellow lights to slow down and move over. The lives of first responders, construction crews, and tow truck operators depend on it!

Drive safely and #MoveOver”
