Right of Way for Emergency Vehicles
Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl is reminding drivers that the law requires motorists to safely pull over and come to a stop when emergency vehicles with lights and sirens approach.
Crow Wing County's top cop tells KLKS News, they must get to the scene of the call quickly because time is of the essence. He says when constantly have to slow down to wait for other motorists to give them right of way, it can cost precious seconds.
Sheriff Dahl says it is important to constantly check the rear-view mirror. Because emergency vehicles can move quickly, they can over take motorists before then know they are upon them.
