Seeing Emergency Vehicles

Police Officers, Firefighters and EMS personnel have had concerns about how motorists behave in traffic when an emergency vehicle approaches them on the road.  Motorists often will ignore them, even if the vehicle has the lights and sirens turned on.  Others will just come to a complete stop in front of the vehicle.  Still others will sped up and try to out run the vehicle.  All of these behaviors make it difficult for Police, Fire and EMS personnel to get to an emergency or transport a patient to a hospital.  When driving in traffic and you see or hear emergency vehicle approaching from behind or from opposite direction on an undivided road, you should pull as far to the right, as possible, then come to a complete stop until the vehicle passes you, then proceed with caution, incase more than one emergency vehicle is coming, down the road.  On a two lane divided roadway, you should pull off to either side and stop until they pass.  If you are at an intersection and emergency vehicles are approaching from the cross street, stop and remain stopped until the vehicles pass through the intersection then proceed with caution as long as you have a green light.
