Q:   What do I do when I see a police car with its emergency lights on stopped on the road?

A:            The Ontario Highway Traffic Act Section 159 requires drivers to slow down and proceed with caution when passing an emergency vehicle parked on the side of a highway with its lights activated. If the highway has more than one lane, the law requires the driver to move over and leave one lane between their vehicle and the parked emergency vehicle if it can be done safely. Failure to do so can result in fines starting from $400 to $2,000 and three demerit points.
