Slow down and move over for emergency vehicles

“When a driver is approaching or passing a stopped emergency vehicle with flashing lights on a roadway the British Columbia Motor Vehicle Act requires drivers traveling to drive at no more than 70 km/hr where the speed limit is 80km/hr or more, or drive at no more than 40 km/hr where the speed limit is less than 80 km/hr,” CPL. Jodi Shelkie said in a written statement.

Shelkie says statistics show that since 2001, more than 40 emergency personal have either been killed or seriously injured while helping people on B.C. roads.

If police witness a driver who fails to abide by this cardinal rule, it may cost them up to $173 and three demerit points.
