connectVideoRaw dash cam video: Vehicle slams into Florida Highway Patrol trooper
It is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. And the Florida Highway Patrol drove the point home, as WPEC reported, through sharing a dramatic video from last November on I-75.
The images: that of a vehicle smacking into a patrol car.
The video was tweeted with the caption: “MOVE OVER FLORIDA! Dash cam video footage car accident in FHP trooper! 1st responders perform a critical service to the side of the road, plz move on, so they can safely do their job! It is the law, common courtesy and, more importantly, it is a life saver!”
The campaign is to remind Florida drivers to move over when they see an emergency on the side of the road, as WLRN reported.
Florida’s slow down/move over law was introduced in 1971, WLRN said, and was last updated in 2014.
