Every day on our roadways, emergency responders and public safety personnel put their lives at risk to protect the citizens of the Commonwealth. In an effort to protect those who protect us, the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety (KOHS) is joining the Kentucky State Police (KSP) to promote the message: Move Over. It’s the Law.
"Our vision is to create a safe transportation system for all Kentuckians," said KOHS Executive Director Bill Bell. "That includes our men and women of law enforcement, emergency services and public safety."
Digital and radio ads, along with outdoor billboards, will complement the existing "Move Over" signs located on major roadways. Additionally, memorial signs will be placed in all Kentucky welcome centers, naming Transportation Cabinet employees who were killed on the job.
"The goal of our campaign is for motorists to be aware of the "Move Over" law and help prevent tragedies from occurring on the side of the road," Bell said. "It's something we owe these dedicated professionals who provide a valuable, and often dangerous, public service."
