I am pleased to announce the latest Office of the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles (OSMV) YouTube video “Slow Down Move Over” is now live on our Road Safety BC YouTube channel. The video seeks to raise awareness about the slow down move over regulation of the Motor Vehicle Act (MVA) which requires drivers to slow down, and move over when approaching an emergency vehicle stopped at the side of the road with its lights flashing. Despite being introduced in 2009, many motorists are still unaware of this law, and so the video should provide a timely reminder for many drivers.
Please take a few minutes to watch the video - www.youtube.com/RoadSafetyBCGov - and if you are on social media, like it, share it or tweet it to your friends and followers or link or embed a copy of the video on your website or blog. Hopefully we have created a resource which our partners and stakeholders will be happy to use to help share this important piece of road safety legislation.
The short live action video was created in-house by staff at the Office of the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles (OSMV) in coordination with local emergency services and tow operators. A big thank you to those agencies and their staff for their participation in this project and to my team of staff for putting this professional video together at no cost (Josh Thompson, Alan Perry & Christine McKenzie).
The 60 second video will be available via the RoadSafetyBC YouTube channel as well as on the OSMV website. Two additional 30 second commercial spots were also created, and will be aired locally on Shaw, CHEK and CTV - made possible by the CRD Traffic Safety Commission. These 30 second spots can also be viewed on our YouTube channel.
I hope you enjoy the videos and can help share and promote them. All feedback on the videos is always welcome and appreciated.
