Albuquerque drivers will see an unusual sight around town Wednesday.

A casket will make its way through the streets to remind people to slow down and move over for road and emergency crews.

The ‘Spirit Ride’ casket honors the hundreds of first responders killed while responding to wrecks.

The casket is raising awareness of slow down and move over laws which require passing vehicles to move over one lane or slow down when approaching an accident.

The casket is expected to stop around  2 p.m. where a ceremony will be followed by a procession to Moriarty.
