Tow truck drivers to motorists: Move over

It was another dangerous few days for tow truck drivers on Twin Cities roadways this Memorial Day weekend.

Tow truck driver Troy Mechura captured video of drivers not moving over despite a Minnesota law that requires drivers to slow down and move over for emergency vehicles.

Tow truck drivers say it’s nothing new and only getting worse.

“I had a semi that literally took my hat right off and sent it down the freeway,” Mechura said.

Tow truck drivers say commuters are often distracted or worse yet, don’t know the law. The space the law seeks to provide can be the difference between life and death and Mechura hopes that, through advocacy, this growing problem can be fixed.

“My life is worth something, everybody’s life is worth something, you can not put a price tag on it,” Mechura said.
