New 'Steer It, Clear It' Law
Please be aware of the “Steer It Clear It” law. This is a state law and that has been adopted by the Seattle City Council. Basically, it states that, in the circumstance of a non-injury collision, involved drivers must move their vehicles out of the roadway to the shoulder or a parking area if possible.
The attached flyer explains the law and directs drivers how to proceed. It also contains an “Exchange of Information” portion. The Seattle Fire Department and SDOT are currently carrying a number of these to give out to drivers at collisions.
Please feel free to distribute this information to your family, friends, Block Watches and community groups.
Also, I recommend you print one of these flyers out to keep in your vehicle- the ‘exchange of information’ section could be very helpful if you are in a collision!
As always let us know if you have any questions!
