Did you know a tow truck operator and roadside assistance technician dies from a collision or someone failing to yield every 6 days?

The towing industry is 15 times deadlier than all other private industries combined, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Road Res-Q services all major highways, parkways, routes and main roads. We encounter close calls multiple times a day and we don’t want to become on of the statistics.

The Slow Down Move Over law and campaigns are to make the traveling public aware of the dangers and reducing deaths and injuries among police, fire, ems, tow operators, roadside assistance and highway workers. All 50 states have slow down, move over laws for emergency responders, which includes tow trucks, however fewer than 30 percent of Americans know about these laws, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

In Virginia, Washington DC and Maryland motorists are required to move over a lane when approaching stopped emergency or roadside assistance vehicles on highways, parkways, and main roads.  After determining it is safe, drivers must move over to create a clear lane of traffic as they approach vehicles with flashing lights including tow service vehicles, motorist assist units, law enforcement vehicles, fire fighting vehicles, emergency medical service vehicles and Department of Transportation vehicles. Any service vehicle which is stopped and displaying strobe or flashing red, yellow, or amber lights is considered under these law. If motorists are unable to move over due to road or weather conditions, or traffic congestion, slow down and maintain a safe speed while passing. Failing to take these actions endangers personnel who provide critical and life-saving services.  Failure to follow the law may result in a fines and jail time.

Roadside service providers respond to over 30 million calls for assistance a year. Our lives are on the line every time we answer the call to assist. We stand on the side of the highway with vehicles traveling over 60 miles per hour just mere inches from us. It only takes one person to loose control, be distracted, or to be impaired to take our life.

We recommend the following precautionary tips:

  • Remain alert. Avoid distractions such as texting, talking on the phone, watching on your device, eating and drinking. Focus on the task of driving.

  • Maintain a visual lead of everything going on 30 seconds ahead of you. This gives you time to see problems ahead and change lanes and adjust speed accordingly.

  • Maintain a safe driving speed. The speed limit is not a recommendation, it is the limit in which you should be traveling. If you have to slow down for a vehicle on the shoulder, we recommend reducing your speed by at least 15 miles per hour less.

  • Emergencies can occur anywhere and at any time on the road. When you see flashing lights, slow down and prepare well in advance to change lanes. Allow others to merge into your lane when necessary. Be prepared for debris and workers to be on the shoulder or even in the lane of travel.

  • Don’t follow semi-trucks or other large vehicles too closely. If a truck moves over a lane, don’t speed around. They tend to be changing lanes for a reason; be prepared to change lanes yourself.

  • When road conditions are slick, don’t make sudden lane changes which can cause an uncontrollable skid. Change lanes early and move over gradually. Stay to a single lane for most of your trip and drive defensively.

  • Incidents can occur in any lane and shoulder. Be wary of issues on the left hand shoulder as much as the right. If you are unable to move over a lane, please slow down to a safe speed taking into consideration that you are approaching a workspace where debris and pedestrians are present.

The team at Road Res-Q asks for public’s support to protect all of the first responders who come to the rescue of motorists.

Slow Down, Move Over for the lives of our highway heroes.

Road Res-Q Customer Reviews

These reviews were left by customers who were stranded on the road, just like you, and called on us for Res-Q!

Excellent communication.I originally called USAA to help me since I locked my keys in my car. Well I was on Fort Belvoir and the first two companies USAA sent couldn’t get through security but never once called me to tell me.USAA eventually contacted Road Res-Q and within a few moments of being assigned, I got a phone call. The driver seemed to know the policy and how to get on post. They arrived about 50 minutes later and kept me updated the entire time. Great job and please continue to do what you do!

I worked with Frank and can 100% recommend him and Road Res-Q for emergencies. I found my car battery completely dead, and my car being older (~8 years), a bunch of 24-hour places didn't have a replacement on hand. The office here called me within 5 minutes of me placing my request online, confirmed they had my battery, and Frank was at my place about 2 hours later. Even after a warehouse snafu causing him to come out twice with new batteries, he then got me on the road in 15 minutes, with a discount for my troubles. Will be keeping their card for future emergencies!

Had a dead battery, searched and found these folks highly rated... they sourced a new battery (didn't have mine in invetory) and had me sorted in <2hrs. My car was dead at my apartment, so it wasn't even an emergency. Fast and very professional service, and good price that was a better value than competitors.

My husband and I had a flat tire while crossing the Wilson Bridge. We initially contacted our insurance company for roadside assistance. After waiting over 1.5 hours in the median with rush hour traffic whirring past us and making multiple calls without anyone coming, I found Road ResQ online and called for help. Frank answered the call. He assured me that he could be to us in 15 minutes. He asked me to text him a Google map pic of our location and confirmed that he knew right where we were. He sent an update to let me know he was a minute away from us. When he arrived, he made sure that we were okay and secured the location with cones. He quickly changed the tire with the spare (that needed to be filled with air). He advised us on how to drive on the spare. Highly recommend Road Res-Q if you need roadside assistance in the DC area. Frank is awesome!! Dependable, empathic, professional, and quick! Don't waste your time with anyone else.

Frank was courteous and responded quickly. As promised, he came by within 20 minutes, replaced my car's battery, did his best to find replacement of a spare-part that apparently was broken, and delivered an excellent service to make my car start again. All of these were done during the holiday time, with a fair price.I truly appreciate and highly recommend his service!

I thoroughly enjoyed the service I received from Res-Q. The technician was very professional and communicated effectively letting me know the time that he would arrive as well as keeping me informed. When he arrived he was very efficient and quick with the whole service taking less than 15 minutes. I would recommend this company to any others in need of any emergency vehicle rescue or repair

Sometimes a basic tire change can quickly escalate. This customer had another company try and assist them however they ended up never showing after 2 hours. The Road Res-Q team was then called out and arrived within 10 minutes. As we got to work we quickly found that the main tire was siezed to the rotor which is the result of a few different things like rust, heat and no getting the tires rotated. It took some work but we were able to free the damaged tire and rim and install the spare. For quick and reliable roadside assistance service call Road Res-Q at 833.737.3770. #roadresq #roadsideassistance #flattire #tirechange #fleetservice #dmv #alexandria #alexandriava #oldtownalexandria #virginia

Sometimes a single flat tire can raise the red flag. If a tire goes flat, there is a reason such as age, wear, or foreign debris and in this case heavy wear leading to 4 bald tires. Instead of buying just one and risking it, it sometimes is safe to just get them all done.
