Petition Make it a legal requirement for drivers to give priority to recovery vehicles
The Government should create a law (‘Martin’s Law’) requiring road users to move over and slow down when a recovery driver is in a live lane or hard shoulder trying to do his job and recover a vehicle.
There are estimated to be 6-8 recovery drivers killed each year whilst trying to make a living for their families. I should be able to do my job without having to worry about if I’m going to get home. Too often, road users don’t make any effort to slow down or move over. It doesn’t take a lot to do this.
