Wisconsin's Department of Transportation is taking steps to educate and save lives during Crash Responder Safety Week Nov. 14-18. Throughout his 30-year career, State Trooper Robert Simpson has spotted good and bad drivers on Wisconsin highways. "This is my career, and I love it. I love it," said Simpson. "People still come out here, and they text and drive. In a construction zone, that's a zero tolerance. That's prohibited." Crash Responder Safety Week reminds drivers to always practice safe driving habits to protect emergency roadside workers. Drivers should focus on the road ahead and move over or slow down when they see emergency vehicles. Wisconsin law requires drivers to move over or slow down to provide a safety zone for emergency vehicles.
