What do you do when approaching an emergency vehicle?
The Victorian State Government has announced that from 1 July 2017, road users will need to slow down to 40km/h when driving past stationary or slow-moving emergency or enforcement vehicles with flashing red, blue or magenta lights, or sounding an alarm.
Emergency and enforcement vehicles include police, ambulance, fire services, State Emergency Service and heavy vehicle enforcement vehicles that have magenta flashing lights (such as VicRoads Transport Safety Service vehicles).
This rule does not apply on a road with a median strip, where the vehicle is on the other side of the median strip. The rule applies to the driver despite any other road rule.
