CLARK COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - The Clark County Sheriff's Office says they made 10 'Scott's Law' traffic stops...in less than two hours.
That's according to a post on their Facebook page.
Scott's Law is a law in Illinois that says drivers need to get over or proceed with caution when driving by a stopped emergency vehicle, construction vehicle, or tow truck.
The Facebook post also shared some paraphrased quotes some used at excuses:
-"Did I 'buzz' by you a little close?" Sir, if you're "buzzing" by you are probably too close.
-"This probably won't make a difference but it was only a tow truck if it were a police car or fire truck... well it's all dangerous I guess" Sir, that tow truck driver has a life and family that is just as important as mine!
-"Well, you're a cop so you're just a little more important." No sir, I'm a human, we are all equal, we are all important, it could have just as easily been a single mom changing a tire with her children in the car, everyone is important.
The post urges drivers to move over, and slow down.
