Providers call for new motorway safety rule

The AA, RAC and Green Flag are keen to ensure all of their roadside patrols are sufficiently protected.

Providers call for new motorway safety rule

The AA, RAC and Green Flag are calling for the implementation of a new motorway safety rule which would offer better protection to their roadside patrols.

A letter was written to road safety minister and MP Jesse Norman asking for the creation of a new “slow down, move over” rule.  

Motorists would be required to reduce their speed and switch over to another lane as they pass a broken-down vehicle or busy recovery patrol with flashing amber lights on the side of a motorway, thereby greatly reducing the risk of anyone getting hit.

The providers also requested that the Department of Transport sponsor a THINK! road safety campaign to highlight the many dangers that both their technicians and members of the public face standing on the side of a motorway after a breakdown.

This action comes after three technicians were killed in three separate incidents while working to repair vehicles at the roadside over the last 12 months.  

“In light of the recent fatalities, we now urgently need the government to work with us to raise awareness of the issue among drivers and to promote a ‘slow down, move over’ message,” said the RAC’s chief operations officer James Knight.
