Dealing With Emergency Vehicles

Many people panic the minute they see an emergency vehicle approaching and often cause more problems for the emergency vehicle than they really would like.
So what's the best thing to do?


1. Always comply with the law.
2. Be safe - the last thing they want is another emergency to deal with.
3. Move out the way as soon as it is safe to do so. Remember - they've passed an advanced driving course and are allowed to break the law.
4. Try to indicate your intention, either by signalling or moving position.

Once they've passed you, check it's safe to return to your previous road position.
