IDAHO (KMVT/KSVT) Following the death of an Illinois State Trooper on Saturday, three law enforcement officers have now been hit and killed while in the line of duty.
Trooper Travis Roberts with the Idaho State Police is now reminding people to pay attention on the roads, not text and drive, as well as wear seat-belts and slow down and move over, when passing an accident or a trooper.
"So if you have oncoming traffic, clearly we don't want you to move over to the oncoming lane of travel, but we do want you to slow down. Keeps everybody safe. If you can move over, please do, and just always be aware of the lights that are in front of you,” Roberts stated.
Roberts also reminds people that it is winter in Idaho, which means snow and to not use cruise control when driving in the snow and to slow down when dealing with winter weather.
