Commentary

Surprisingly many fatal accidents occur when one of the vehicles is parked on the side of the road. It is important to remember if you need to pull to the side of the interstate/road pull to the side as far as possible. If you are a driver remember to slow down or move over when a vehicle is pulled to the side.
