Emergency lights slow down - move over
February 17, 2022
Emergency Lanes are needed for emergencies. Recently while responding to a semi trailer fire on the Interstate, I personally observed how important the emergency lanes are to fire and rescue operations. That day the Westbound Interstate was blocked by an semi trailer fire and our fire trucks needed to get to that trailer to help extinguish the blazing fire creating smoke that was blinding traffic.
Luckily the emergency lane we needed was still open but it was a dangerous squeeze to cross the overpass with only inches from being too small for our truck to clear the guard rails and semi rigs...
