Please Protect Those Who Protect You!

Tragically, more than 150 law enforcement officers have been killed since 1999 after being struck by vehicles along America's highways.
With safe and attentive driving and more awareness about Move Over... laws, every one of those deaths could have been prevented. The Florida State Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police, the Florida Highway Patrol, the Florida Police Chiefs Association, the Florida Police Benevolent Association and the Florida Sheriff’s Association have teamed up to designate
June 2014 as "Move Over – Slow Down – Save a Life" month.
Please take the time to read Florida's law by clicking on the link below and help educate your friends, neighbors and loved ones. Protect your
public safety officers out on the roadways so that they can
stay on the job protecting you!
