LAW LOOKS AFTER FIRST RESPONDERS
ATTENDING roadside incidents can be risky business – that's why our roads have now been made safer for workers attending emergencies. As of March 2, the new law requires motorists to reduce speed to a maximum of 40km/h when passing incident response vehicles with flashing lights and, where possible and safe to do so, move to the next lane. This applies to all emergency service vehicles and first response personnel who need to attend to roadside incidents very quickly. Their priority is the safety and survival of the person requiring assistance. Let’s look after those who look after us. - Senior Sergeant Simon Hazell
