Stopping for emergency vehicles

Alert message sent 11/02/2019 11:25:00

Information sent on behalf of South Yorkshire Police


Good Morning,

Please find below some information from the Highway Code regarding stopping for emergency vehicles.

If you hear or see an emergency vehicle approaching you displaying flashing lights and/or sounding sirens, do not panic.  Consider the route it is taking and take appropriate action to let it pass, while complying with traffic signs.  If necessary, pull to the side of the road and stop but try to avoid stopping before the brow of a hill, a bend or narrow section of road.  Do not endanger yourself, other road users or pedestrians and avoid mounting the kerb.  Do not brake harshly on the approach to a junction or roundabout, as a following vehicle may not have the same view as you.
