BC Interior officers target nearly 200 drivers in ‘Slow Down, Move Over’ campaign

BC Highway Patrol officers handed out nearly 200 warnings in less than three hours of work earlier this week as part of their ‘Slow Down, Move Over’ campaign.

On Feb 27, officers in Cranbrook positioned themselves along Hwy 3/95 in an attempt to spread a message to drivers and protect roadside workers.

“The goal of the operation was to improve the safety of first responders, highway maintenance workers and tow operators,” stated Insp. Chad Badry in a news release.

“We are asking drivers to ‘slow down and move over’ to make our highways safer for emergency responders and roadside workers.”

Partner agencies such as Cranbrook Fire and Emergency Services, BC Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement, Mainroad East Kootenay Contracting and a pair of towing companies attended the event along with BCHP.

Drivers who were targeted by officers were given educational pamphlets. More information on the campaign can be found online at this link.
