Comments from Peter Rodger, Chief Examiner of the IAM
Loud sirens and flashing blue lights cause many motorists confusion, mainly because they are not routinely taught how to respond to them. Drivers generally have the best intentions, but sometimes inadvertently hold up emergency vehicle drivers further by trying to be helpful but taking the wrong action, or being uncertain about what to do and indecisive. This video fills a vital gap in driver’s knowledge, by giving them the confidence to act when approached by an emergency vehicle.
For emergency services time really does count and speeding up their progress does save lives. Watch the video and be prepared.
