NDOT Reminds Drivers to Move Over
Statewide (March 29, 2021) – On March 30, 2015, Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) maintenance worker Ron Raiche, Jr. was struck and killed in a truck accident. The truck driver failed to give Raiche enough room to perform his duties, which resulted in tragedy. To honor the anniversary of Raiche’s death, NDOT reminds all drivers to “move over” for maintenance workers, emergency responders, law enforcement, city and county vehicles with flashing amber lights, and two vehicles. Doing so can help prevent wrongful death.
Lerner and Rowe urges you and the drivers in your family to “move over,” as NDOT suggests. Raiche is the most recent of 24 NDOT employees to die on the job since 1948. His death could have been avoided if he was given enough room to work safely. Please do your part to keep maintenance workers, first responders, and law enforcement safe. Source: NDOT
