Tow truck driver pays tribute

Tow truck driver Bob Patza Jr. from Jim Olson Motors in Sturgeon Bay hopes people learn a valuable lesson during Monday’s Light’em Up for Jesse Honor Run.  Dozens of tow truck drivers, emergency personnel, and other operators will turn on their strobe lights and drive a portion of U.S. Highway 41 near DePere in honor of Jesse Hettmann, who was struck and killed on Friday while moving a stalled vehicle. Patza read the story early Saturday morning and received a call for a tow just ten minutes after he finished it. He admits it was the first time he had a hard time getting into his truck. After deciding to participate in the honor run, Patza says he needed to pay tribute to one of his own.

Motorists are required to move over if possible if they see a vehicle with its emergency lights on. Violating the law could cost you more than $260 and three demerit points on your license.
