AAA New England's 'Slow Down Move Over' PSA named best in NH
About 200 roadside workers, law enforcement officers, firefighters, tow truck drivers and EMTs are hit and killed by passing traffic every year.
AAA Northern New England made a PSA to address the issue, and it must have been pretty good. The "Slow Down Move Over" PSA won the 2016 Granite Mikes Award for “Public Service Announcement of the Year” at the 2016’s New Hampshire Association of Broadcasters Granite Mike Awards, held last week.
“To be recognized for creatively promoting safety for highway workers who risk their life every day to help the public is an honor that will help improve awareness of the highway safety message,” said Pat Moody manager of public affairs for AAA Northern New England.
To help raise awareness of the need to slow down or move over, AAA Northern New England worked with the New Hampshire Tow Association, Concord Police and Fire Department, the New Hampshire Department of Transportation, New Hampshire State Police and NH1 News.
