"what drives me crazy is often times when emergency vehicles are traveling down the road with lights and sirens that drivers often don't know what to do. so, anytime a driver sees an emergency vehicle, be it a fire truck, ambulance or a police officer, and they're driving down the road and they have lights and sirens on, immediately pull to the right and stop. don't stop in the travel lane that you're in. don't keep driving in the travel lane that you're in, don't pull to the left. immediately pull to the right, pull to the curb,
6:22 am
drive by, and then you can continue on with your drive." "it's very important that people pull over to the right, let emergency traffic pass by. fire trucks, ambulances and police officers are all on their way to an emergency. so, if we can have a free travel lane, allow that emergency traffic to pass by, we can get to those emergencies much quicker, much safer and be able to handle that emergency much better." >> sometimes when you have your volume all the way up in the car, it's hard to hear those visually aware of what's going on all around you. what's driving you crazy? remember, you can write me at. traffic 8 at las vegas now dot com. back to you./// (( do you still love me tomorrow, do you still love me, will you still love me )) ((kirsten joyce)) this morning, we are
