Vehicles covered in this legislation, not only includes police vehicles and ambulances but it includes tow trucks, garbage collectors, utility workers among others.
 
Several cases have been reported of where the operators of said vehicles have been involved in accidents which lead to their injuries and sometimes death. We would like to reiterate to all motorists to slow down as they approach such vehicles, on the road.
 
If you are on the road with multiple lanes, then, move over and give the operators enough room to continue with their business or services. Let us be aware on the roads as road safety begins with each person.

ONTARIO

Yes, the law requires you to slow down as you approach an “official” vehicle that has stopped and has its amber, red or blue lights flashing, the same way you would react to an emergency vehicle, i.e. a police car, ambulance, etc. The legislation includes utility workers, garbage collectors, animal control workers, etc., to give them room to fulfill their duties in safety.
 
As a driver, you will need to decrease your speed as you approach a stopped vehicle. For safe braking, brake early and gradually as you get full control of your vehicle. As you slow down, you will be adjusting the flow of traffic around you and thus prevent any incidents that would lead yours or other vehicles, colliding.
 
If you are on the road with more than one lane, you need to change from one lane to another safely. That is the lane(s) without the emergency car or tow truck. Be on the lookout for fast approaching automobiles. If the road is undivided, then, all motorists approaching the vehicle from both sides should slow down.
 
There have been accidents cases that have involved workers at the roadside, leading to their injuries and even death. Don’t add to the number of accident reports that to file at the nearby Accident Reporting Centre.
 
Remember to Slow Down and Move Over if and, when you see lights flashing, red, blue or amber on a stopped vehicle on the road. Give room for the operators to be safe as they help those in need.
