RIGHT RESPONSE TO EMERGENCY SIRENS
Many drivers seem confused the moment they hear a siren, so here are a few tips:
Firstly if the emergency vehicle, whether it be the police, an ambulance or a fire engine, is approaching you from behind and it is not sounding its siren or flashing its emergency lights, then you don't have to do a thing.
If the lights or the sirens or both are on, remain calm. Try to give way to the vehicle by moving as far as possible to the left . Make sure you do so safely and indicate your intentions. If possible, do not break the law in your effort to give way; by contravening a red traffic light, for instance. Failing to heed these instructions may lead to a $400 infringement and four demerit points. – Detective Sergeant Gary Thwaites
