Daniel P. May was slapped off the side
of the highway by a tractor-trailor.
He was parked on the highway shoulder to inspect
minor damage to the fender of his Toyota Tercel.
The AAA used the death to call for an end to Virginia's
policy of allowing driving on the shoulder during rush-hour.
It was the first day of a study to see if extending rush-hour
by 30 minutes would alleviate congestion.
Emergency vehicles the stopped tractor-trailor
brought traffic to a stop.
May was 150 ft. from an "emergency pull-off."
The Virginia State Police claim the death was not related to shoulder driving.
