ProTransport-1 was recently invited to participate in the American Towman Spirit Ride by Oliver’s Tow. The Spirit Ride promotes public awareness of the Move Over laws while paying tribute to first responders who have been killed on the roadside. The ceremonial casket, “Spirit,” is relayed from city to city by volunteer tow trucks, followed by fire trucks, EMS and police vehicles. Spirit Ride began on June 1, 2017 and, by the end of 2018, will have visited 300 cities, relayed by processions involving over 10,000 vehicles.
ProTransport-1 attended the Spirit Ride Ceremony and followed along with Richmond Fire, California Highway Patrol and multiple tow trucks as Oliver’s Tow relayed the ceremonial casket from Richmond to Vallejo. We were very honored to participate in the event and thank Oliver’s Tow for inviting us!
