“This is just another example of why, per Wisconsin law, you should MOVE OVER or SLOW DOWN If you see a stopped emergency or maintenance vehicle with its emergency lights flashing on the side of the roadway. Failure of motorists to move over is one of the reasons that motor vehicle crashes kill more law enforcement officers on duty than any other cause,” the post read.
