The daylight hours are getting shorter and with that comes the need to play it safe during your morning and evening commutes. AAA is asking everyone on the roadways to remember to slow down and move over for emergency responders. Idaho's move-over law protects police and emergency vehicles, tow trucks and other highway incident responders. AAA officials tell us it's a serious issue — and drivers need to stay aware. "Two people are struck and killed at the roadside, either a tower or a first responder, every month," said Matthew Conde of AAA. "So that tells you that there is a significant problem out there, and in fact, the towing industry is one of the most dangerous industries there is."
