A fire truck, ambulance, or police car is approaching with its lights and sirens on .... What should I do?"
When an emergency vehicle approaches you with its lights and sirens on, when it is safe to do so, pull to the right and stop even if you are in the left hand lane. If it is not safe to do so, stop where you are and wait for all the emergency vehicles to pass. Don't pull into an intersection if you are at a traffic light or stop sign. Please be courteous, remember the emergency we're responding to may be yours. BE SAFE!
