Safe Driving Tips

SAFE DRIVING UPDATE

Emergency Vehicles Stopped on The Road Ahead of You? MOVE OVER!

Ambulance, fire and police workers are routinely required to place themselves and others in danger while stopped at the side of the road. Whether it’s a suburban street, a country road or a multi-lane highway, the danger to life and limb is serious.

It’s the law… drivers MUST move away from the stopped emergency vehicle! When traffic flow allows the manoeuvre to be made, drivers must signal a lane change, check to make sure they can move safely, and then pull away from the stopped emergency vehicle.

Ontario drivers be aware… tow trucks with flashing amber lights are included on the list of vehicle for which we must all move.
