Saturday Oct 21st 2017 towing operator Kyle Crull was struck and killed on Interstate 15 south and Temecula Parkway exit by and underage intoxicated driver, leaving behind a devistated family, daughter, freinds and coworkers.
In 2007 california enacted the slow down, move over law for ALL Emergency vehicles, highway workers , police , fire and E.M.S, This law also includes Towing Operators while working roadside.
This is a very little known law on the books here in California, and in Not enforced by any agency.
The towing and Roadside service provider annual death toll rises every year, as it is one of the MOST dangerous jobs listed in Cal O.S.H.A reports. 47 operators were killed last year nationwide, that does not include the near fatal accidents that have also occurred last year.
I have been in the industry for over 20 years and have had my own close calls, where i did almost didnt make it home that day.
What we are calling for is Enforcement of the current law on the books to prevent any officer, fireman, E.m.t , towing operator, and Construction worker from being killed or injured onnthe job due to lack of enforcment.
Other states have the same law on the books and highly enforce the same law that dramatically reduces roadside fatalities, where We are left to fend for ourselves depending on coworkers and other companies to block for us, as we are the only ones that seem to care of we make it home to our families at the end of our day.
While it may inconvenience the motorist that fails to abide by the law and gets a citation. It will save lives and raise awareness, for roadside workers safety.
Current law, states first violation is a 50.00 dollar ticket, are our lives worth 50.00?.. What is yours worth?
please take time sign the petition , potentially save a life, and remeber THOSE we have lost.
In momory of Fallen Operator KYLE CRULL
