It’s been 10 years since the Move Over law went into effect to try to ensure the safety of emergency personnel on the sides of the road. But even with this law, 170 law enforcement officers in the country have died after being struck by vehicles while they were standing on the roadside.

On Jan. 26, 38-year-old Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Dave Rodriguez was seriously injured in Orlando after pulling over a driver.
