Protecting Ontario’s Emergency Services drivers on the road

Did you know that slowing down and moving over for emergency vehicles with
flashing red or red and blue emergency lights is the law?
When an ambulance, police, fire emergency vehicle or tow truck is stopped on the
side of the road with its emergency lights flashing, drivers in the lane next to it must
slow down and, where possible and if it’s safe to do so, change lanes.
During the week of April 15th–23rd Saugeen Shores Police Service will be conducting
focused enforcement on this issue.
On April 15th, one driver was issued a $490 ticket which when convicted includes 3
demerit points.
Slow down and exercise caution when passing emergency vehicles.
