  • Drivers must use due care when approaching an emergency vehicle that displays red and or white emergency lighting. On all roads and highways, divers must reduce speed.
  • On parkway and other controlled access highways with multiple lanes, when approaching an emergency vehicle that displays red and/or white emergency lighting or a hazard vehicle displaying flashing amber lighting, driver must move from the immediately adjacent to the emergency or hazard vehicle, unless traffic or other hazards exists to prevent doing so safely.
