I always slow down, pull over to the right and stop. If at an intersection (turning left, where it's not possible to pull over) when I have the green light, I stop.
What if you can't see the emergency vehicle? Do you still follow the above rules?
Yesterday when I was coming home from work, I was a few cars back in the left turn lane. We got the green arrow (the people going through the intersection still had a red light), a couple of cars went through and I heard sirens.
I didn't see an emergency vehicle to my left, or to the front nor behind and there was a van blocking the view on my right. So I stopped. The guy behind me immediately started beeping his horn. I thought "What? You can't hear the sirens? I'm suppse to stop!"
Then the sirens got softer and a man's voice started talking.
Thats when I realized that the sirens I was hearing was coming from the radio.
Has that ever happened to you?
Not the first time for me.
