Tip of the week

Regarding emergency vehicles:

• When driving and an emergency vehicle approaches, use the turn signal, slow down and pull over to the side of the road as quickly and safely as possible.

• When the emergency vehicle passes, engage the left turn signal and pull back into traffic when it’s safe to do so. Avoid rushing back into traffic. It is better to be safe than to keep the same place in the flow of traffic.

• When yielding to emergency vehicles do not pull over and keep the speed at or near the speed limit. This causes the emergency vehicle to take longer to pass you.

• If an emergency vehicle approaches while on a curve or hill, do not stop on the curve or hill. At a normal speed, get beyond this area to a flat or straight stretch of the road.
