Get out of the way.
That’s the message local emergency responders want to spread with a new campaign.
Called “Move Over… Protect Us All!” it highlights the precious seconds that can be lost when drivers refuse to move over when approached by an ambulance, fire truck or police cruiser with its lights on. Lives can be lost in that time.
The campaign includes a video you can see here.
“Move Over… Protect Us All!” also helps to explain Ontario’s “Move Over Law” that requires drivers to slow down and if possible change lanes when coming across an emergency vehicle on the side of the road with its lights on.
