Illinois State Trooper Lisa Osborne talks about the importance of Scott's Law and driving safety. Scott's Law was enacted after Lieutenant Scott Gillen of the Chicago Fire Department was killed by a driver on an expressway in 2000. The law requires motorist to move into the far lane when approaching stationary vehicles.
 
 
The law also requires drivers to move over when motorist are on the side of the road. Obsorne goes on to say the best way to remain safe on the road is to not violate the Fatal-4. The Fatal-4 is a list of moving violations that cause the most fatalities, including: speeding, driving under the influence, distracted driving, and seat belt compliance.
 
And if you get pulled over keep calm, pull over on the right hand shoulder, and put your hazzards on to let the police officer know your acknowledgment.
