Slow Down, Move Over
The Motor Vehicle Act (MVA) requires drivers to slow down, and move over when approaching an emergency vehicle stopped at the side of the road with its lights flashing. Despite being introduced in 2009, many motorists are still unaware of this law.
The Office of the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles has produced a YouTube video to provide a timely reminder for many drivers. Please take the time to view the video and share it or tweet it with your friends. Lets keep the road safe for emergency personnel. www.youtube.com/RoadSafetyBCGov
