When drivers see sirens flashing, they need to move over.
According to Arizona Revised Statutes,Ã‚Â 28-775E.1.2. Authorized Emergency Vehicles; Approaching; Following Fire Apparatus, when a police vehicle, ambulance or fire apparatus is driving with its lights and sirens activated, pull to the right of the roadway and stop moving. Do not stop in an intersection.
Drivers must follow this statute unless a law-enforcement official directs them to do otherwise.
Drivers who see a police vehicle on the side of the roadway must move into a travel lane that is not adjacent and remain there until the drivers have passed the emergency vehicle.
If changing lanes would be impossible or unsafe, drivers should proceed with caution and reduce the speed of the vehicle, maintaining a safe speed for road conditions.
The fine for this offense is $135. If the offense caused an accident, the fine is $173. Both fines carry an additional $36.60 court fee assessment.
