Slow Down, Move Over – A Public Service Announcement
This is an excellent PSA that ESTRA has shared. I have been out at the rest areas yesterday and today and I am surprised how many people are NOT aware of this law. Please let’s help educate them. Share this and remember to be careful out there.
Seems obvious, doesn’t it? But the fact is that while most people realize that it’s more difficult to drive a truck than a car, many don’t know exactly what a truck’s limitations are in terms of maneuverability, stopping distances, and blind spots.
Is everyone alright and who is with you?
Do you need an ambulance?
Do you have children with you?
Do you have any pets with you?
Most major highways do NOT allow you to abandon your vehicle on the highway and WILL have it towed. It’s dangerous and will cost you much more in the end than simply making a call to a professional towing company for assistance.

What you can do yourself to keep your car on the road.

If everything on TV were true, then keeping a vehicle running great, looking good, and lasting a long time would be the easiest thing ever. Advertising will tell us over and over that all we really need to do to keep that car or truck running forever and looking brand new for years is to pour some bottles of miracle liquid into the crankcase, sprinkle magic dust on the paint, or spray some sort of ionized wonder water on the interior. Unfortunately this is not the case.
Following the old adage that “if it sounds too good to be true it probably is” comes the news that regular, proper care and maintenance are what really keep vehicles going into the high six-figure mileage ranges. Miracle cures, magic fairy dust, mystery polymers and the like are all fine and good for infomercials, but most likely won’t do much good for your vehicle.
