"It's one of the lowest ones that's probably written, because if we are by ourselves, we are dealing with a situation and we can't go after that person," said Kennedy. "Unless I'm finishing at a crash or finishing up a traffic stop, they're going to get away with it."
Indiana State Police could not provide an exact breakdown of how many tickets were issued for failing to move over for tow trucks, but Kennedy said wreckers are in an especially tough spot.
"They don't have the luxury of us being with them," said Kennedy. "They're really taking their lives in their own hands."
You can be fined and your driver's license can be suspended for up to two years if you fail to move over and end up causing damage to emergency equipment, or if you hurt or kill an emergency worker.
But according to numbers we obtained from the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles, seven licenses were suspended in 2013 for failing to yield to emergency vehicles. That's 0.0018 percent of all licenses suspended last year.
Tow truck drivers said cracking down on violators might help, but they think the solution is educating drivers to give them more room.
"If you can't get over, at least slow down," said Aughenbaugh. "A deadline is not worth killing yourself or someone over."
The law currently does not apply to regular cars broken down on the side of the road, but police said it's a good idea to move over or slow down for them, too.
