I AS A TOW TRUCK DRIVERS WIFE KNOW HOW DANERGOUS THE JOB CAN BE. YOUR OUT ALL HOURS OF THE DAY AND NIGHT HELPING MOTORISTS WITH VERY LITTLE REASSURANCE THAT YOU WILL BE RETURNING HOME TO YOUR FAMILY SAFELY. I HAVE SEEN FIRST HAND MANY CLOSE CALLS MY HUSBAND HAS HAD DOING HIS JOB. WHETHER IT BE ON THE SHOULDER OF THE HIGHWAY OR WORKING AN ACCIDENT. THE LAW REQUIRES TOW TRUCK TO HAVE FLASHING AMBER LIGHTS, WELL MY OPINION THOSE LIGHTS ARE NOT ENOUGH THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE COLORS. FOR EXAMPLE WHEN YOUR DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD AND YOU SEE A COP CAR WITH BLUE LIGHTS FLASHING  ITS ALMOST INSTINCT THAT YOU SLOW DOWN AND MOVE OVER..SO I FEEL THAT TO IMPROVE THE SAFETY OF ALL TOW TRUCK DRIVERS THERE SHOULD BE A LAW ALLOWING BLUE/RED/AMBER/ OR ANY OF COLOR LIGHT ON THE TRUCKS TO HELP WITH SAFETY AND GET PEOPLE TO ATLEAST SLOW DOWN WHEN APPROACHING A SCENE. THERE IS A MOVE OVER AND SLOW DOWN LAW IN ALL 50 STATES, ALL THOUGH ONLY CERTAIN STATES RECONIZE TOW TRUCK AS AN EMERGENCY VEHICLE. WELL THATS ANOTHER PROBLEM, I FEEL THAT THEY ARE. WITH THAT BEING SAID TOW TRUCKS SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO HAVE A SIREN ON THEM. JUST LIKE ALL OTHER EMERGENCY VEHICLES ARE ALLOWED TO HAVE. I HAVE DONE RESEARCH AND FOUND THAT 1 TOW TRUCK DRIVER DIES ON THE JOB EVERY 6 DAYS. APRROXIMATELY 50-100 DRIVERS A YEAR. LEAVING A TOTAL OF 400 OR MORE DEATHS IN THIS PROFESSION.  I DONT KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT I FEEL THAT IS WAY TO MANY AND TO OFTEN. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO GET LAW ENFORCEMENT TO ENFORCE THE MOVE OVER SLOW DOWN LAW.IF YOU AGREE WITH ME PLEASE TAKES A FEW MINUTES OF YOUR TIME AND SIGN THIS PETITION SO WE CAN GET THIS LAW PASSED.
