Crews & Worksites
Our employees are dedicated to providing the safest, most reliable utility services every day. It’s a responsibility that requires maintenance and repair done by individual servicemen, a small crew or large multi-person, multi-equipment worksites. These crews and worksites can be seen throughout the community day or night, in any kind of weather, often in the line of traffic. Distracted or non-attentive drivers can pose a serious risk to themselves, the crews and worksites and traffic around them.
It’s imperative for every driver to MoveOver when approaching utility worksites.
- Four Lane Roads – When traffic and safety conditions allow, vehicles approaching utility crews or worksites should move into the far lane away from the site.
- Two Lane Roads – When traffic and safety conditions allow, vehicles approaching utility crews or worksites should change lanes. If this is not possible, drivers should reduce speed and proceed with caution.
Tennessee’s Move-Over law was created for police, firefighters and other emergency personnel and amended in 2011 to include work zones of utility workers. The law outlines a safe zone for protection and requires motorists to slow down or move over when approaching these areas.
