Who will be 2016’s biggest loser?
(December 2015) – A trucking company is taking action to raise awareness of safety by putting stickers on trucks to keep first responders and those who work on the roads safe.
Houff Transfer in Weyers Cave started the “move over” bumper stickers campaign in 2009. This year they have made 100 stickers to go on the back of trailers. The “move over” law requires drivers to change lanes or slow down and cautiously pass emergency responders when they are on the side of the road. This includes highway maintenance vehicles and tow trucks as well.

“It means a lot just to know you’re giving the state trooper or construction worker all the room he needs so he’ll be safe,” said Clyde Saunders, a truck driver with Houff Transfer.
According to the Virginia State Police, in 2015 there have been eight troopers struck while either outside or seated inside of their vehicles when working on highways.
