Lt. Gov. Miller was joined by AAA Mid-Atlantic leadership members and members of law enforcement, including Maryland Transportation Authority Police Chief Kevin Anderson. Ahead of the holiday weekend, Lt. Gov. Miller is urging all Marylanders who are traveling to be aware of increased congestion, to follow all road closures and signs, to adhere to “Move Over” laws, and to take necessary safety precautions on the roads.
