WHEN YOU SEE FLASHING LIGHTS “MOVE OVER”

Having trouble viewing this email? https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/AZDOT/bulletins/17848ab

When you see flashing lights, “Move Over”

 ADOT
Travel Arizona’s highways this week and you’ll see this message on overhead signs:

FLASHING LIGHTS?

GIVE ‘EM SPACE

MOVE OVER

We hope “Move Over” rings familiar. If not, let’s refresh your memory: • “Move Over” is a state law that requires motorists to move over one lane – or slow down if it is not safe to change lanes – when approaching any vehicle with flashing lights pulled to the side of a road or highway. • That includes first responder vehicles such as tow trucks, fire trucks, ambulances and police cruisers, as well as utility trucks and even passenger vehicles that have emergency flashers blinking. Click the graphic at right for this information.  Lives can be saved when vehicles “Move Over.” In June near Benson, a tow truck operator was killed when a vehicle struck him as he assisted a stranded motorist on the shoulder of Interstate 10.  Tragically, that’s not uncommon, as being a first responder to vehicle crashes and disabled motorists is dangerous work. Nationally, one tow truck operator is killed every six days. On average, about 23 highway workers and one law enforcement officer are killed every month and five fire fighters are killed every year in the United States.  Remember, when you see flashing lights on, give ’em space and “Move Over.”

YMPO ROLLS OUT NEW INTERACTIVE ONLINE TOOL ENABLING PUBLIC TO VIEW AND COMMENT ON MAP OF PROPOSED TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENTS

Yuma, Ariz. – The YMPO is updating the Regional Transportation Plan. The YMPO Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) 2018-2041 is a long-term blueprint of a region’s transportation system. It contains a list of transportation improvements that will be implemented over the next two decades. RTPs are updated every four years.

The YMPO is launching a new online community engagement tool to help the public review the draft list of proposed projects and provide their comments. The tool allows users to view an interactive map that identifies the proposed transportation improvements, and similar to other online social platforms, “Like, Dislike or Comment” on them. Visitors to the site are directed to a landing page that provides simple instructions on how to use the site and users can then click on various icons representing individual projects and learn about the proposed improvement including location and timing.

To participate, the public should visit the interactive website at: gg.mysocialpinpoint.com/ympo between Sept. 16 and Oct. 6, 2016.

In addition to using the software to access the map and view proposed transportation improvements, users can also propose other improvements by dragging “pins” to locations, commenting, and can even attach pictures.

“We want to hear from anyone who moves about the YMPO area. We want to tap into the experiences people have when they go to work, drop their children off at school, use sidewalks and paths or cross our intersections,” said Charles Gutierrez of YMPO.

Input gathered from the gg.mysocialpinpoint.com/ympo website will influence the final list of projects that will be included in the YMPO Regional Transportation Plan 2018-2041, which is being prepared for the entire YMPO planning area. Jurisdictions that make up the YMPO are the City of Yuma; Yuma County; the Cocopah Indian Tribe; the Town of Wellton; the cities of Somerton and San Luis; Winterhaven, California; the Quechan Indian Tribe; and the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) operating as “Local governments working together”.

For questions about the transportation projects, contact Charles Gutierrez at (928) 783-8911 or cgutierrez@ympo.org.
