Broken down car with tow truck

Slow Down, Move Over.

CAA has long advocated for the protection of motorists and tow truck operators through the Slow Down, Move Over legislation. CAA supported private member’s bills in 2011 and 2012 and the Making Ontario’s Roads Safer Act (Bill 31) in 2015. Effective September 1, 2015, the Highway Traffic Act was successfully amended to extend Slow Down, Move Over provisions to tow trucks, with penalties of $490 and three demerit points.
