    Have you ever been out driving when an emergency vehicle, “Fire/Police/Ambulance” was responding to an emergency with its lights and siren on? Do you know what the law requires of you, as a driver?
    Title 29A – 2054 H 4 reads that on approach of any such vehicle, the operator of every other vehicle shall immediately draw that vehicle as near as practicable to the right-hand curb, parallel to the curb and clear of any intersection and bring it to a standstill until the authorized emergency vehicle has passed.
    By not doing this you may be subjected to a fine of $250 for the first offense and for the second offense occurring within three years of the first offense a mandatory 30-day suspension of your driver’s license.
