April event honors fallen ODOT worker

Posted Mar. 28, 2017 by

OCSEA member and ODOT employee Lee Rizor, who was killed by a motorist as he was working along I-71, will be honored at a special event on April 21. The event will highlight the “Move Over” law that OCSEA activists fought for and that took effect after the tragic event.

The event will take place at the Southbound and Northbound Rest Areas along I-71 just south of the Delaware/Route 36 exit from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ODOT activists will have on hand information about Ohio’s Move Over laws as well as complimentary key chains.

This April is the fourth year anniversary of Lee’s death.

More on the Move Over Law

Did you know, Ohio’s Move Over Law requires motorists to cautiously shift over one lane—or slow down if changing lanes is not possible—when passing any vehicle with flashing lights on the side of a road. Its purpose is to protect everyone who works on our roads and everyone who travels on them.
