Be Respectful of Cars Parked On the Shoulder

If you have ever been stuck in the shoulder lane of the highway, you know how frustrating it can be. First, your car breaks down, and you have to somehow move over to the shoulder before your car stops. Then, while you're waiting for help, cars are whizzing past you at 70 miles per hour, only a few feet away. But what can drivers do to make this situation not as bad?

Move over when you see a car parked in the shoulder lane. It is bad enough that their car isn't working, but when other cars are flying by a few feet away, it makes the situation scarier. If it isn't possible for you to get into a farther-away lane, slow down quite a bit. The driver of the parked car will appreciate this. Not only that, but it’s the law throughout the country - regardless of if you’re passing a truck, paramedic, or police officer.

If you have any questions about what you should do when a car is on the shoulder, give us a call at BMW Seattle and our staff would love to help spread awareness of this important driving knowledge.
