Pull to the right for lights and sirens
What do I do when an emergency vehicle is approaching?
Pull to the right for lights and sirens. When an emergency vehicle is approaching you from behind, it is important to safely move to the right upon noticing it. Pulling to the right for lights and sirens will alert other drivers around you and provide time for them to pull over as well. When you are at an intersection, do not proceed through the red light to yield for an emergency vehicle behind you-stay put! The vehicle will typically enter the opposing lanes to proceed more safely through the intersection or may turn off their siren and wait for the light to turn green. In no case, should you move to the left.
Many drivers may have earbuds on or have the music turned up to the point which it is difficult to hear sirens. This may prevent you from pulling over in a timely manner.
Remember: Pull to the right for lights and sirens
