When You See an Emergency Vehicle Should You Move Left Right or Slow Down

When You See an Emergency Vehicle Should You Move Left Right or Slow Down - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

When you see an emergency vehicle should you drive to the left, right, or slow down? It depends. Is the emergency vehicle moving or stationary? Any time you encounter a stationary emergency vehicle on the freeway you are required to move over into the next available adjacent lane or slow down if moving over is not possible or unsafe. Compare to when you encounter a moving emergency vehicle which requires you to move to the right.

Drivers often panic when they realize they are being pulled over by an officer and immediately pull to the left if they are driving in the left lane on the freeway. However a driver is always required to move to the right immediately. A ticket for failing to yield to the right for a moving emergency vehicle is almost twice as much as a ticket for failing to slow down or change lanes for a stationary emergency vehicle and both violations can add one point to a driver’s motor vehicle record.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
