» move over from page 21 position: in or near the road as heavy and fast vehicles attempt to navigate around them. There are still drivers out there who do not have the fullest understanding of their responsibilities in such situations. Sometimes things end in the worst possible way. Who Gets Harmed In October 2013, Maryland trooper Jacqueline Kline was nearly killed when she was hit by a car as she was assisting a fellow trooper on the side of the road. In May 2014 in Tennessee, Officer Michael Petrina was struck and killed while assisting a Tennessee Department of Transportation help truck at another accident. And with work zones, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Fatality Analysis Reporting System, 579 people lost their lives in motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2013, the latest reported year. While there are differences between work zones and stops where law enforcement and emergency responders are doing their job, there is a similarity when the worst-case scenario comes true: when the loved one at home gets the call. Such was the case when Trooper Marc Castellano's mother received the call from her daughter-in-law, saying he had been struck. He passed not long after she and her husband got to the hospital. She has since devoted herself to advocacy, to making people aware that the Move Over law is real, ignorance is not an acceptable defense in the courts, and the only real solution to this problem is education. Castellano's mother is Donna Setaro, and the Move over AwaReness Campaign is, as the name indicates, dedicated to his memory. As a substitute teacher by profession, Setaro was able to have a conversation with a driver's education teacher in one of the high schools she covers. By this time the thought of becoming a crusader for Move Over law awareness was taking shape, and when this teacher said to her, "...there is a law (on the books) but it is not even in the student drivers manual," Setaro knew what she had to do. After some shaky first steps, she connected with a state trooper who saw the potential in what she was proposing. "He had been in traffic and safety for many years and realized the danger behind [non-compliance]. He took my skeleton PowerPoint and got it approved by New Jersey State police, embedded videos I wouldn't have had access to otherwise, and toured with me through the first year of giving this presentation." Setaro believes that education is the answer. Sadly, there will always be reckless drivers and ignorant drivers alike. By making sure that everyone who gets behind the wheel knows there are laws, considerable penalties, life-altering and life-ending consequences, perhaps drivers will think a moment longer before making a tragic choice. For fleet managers, delivering that understanding to every driver needs to be as common as assigning the vehicle. Donald W.
