This Summer, Slow Down and Move Over

Trooper Castellano 

Just this month, three U.S. law enforcement officers— California Highway Patrol Officer Philip Ortiz (June 22), Massachusetts State Police Sergeant Doug Weddleton (June 18), and New Jersey State Trooper Marc Castellano (June 6)—have been struck and killed by motorists as the officers were outside their vehicles. These and other tragedies are sober reminders of the dangers officers face on the side of America’s roadways, especially during the summer months when more people are driving and more officers are out on patrol to keep us safe.

You, your family members and neighbors can do something to help protect our officers—beginning with slowing down and moving over one lane of traffic when you see a police cruiser or any emergency vehicle stopped along the side of the road.
