Emergency vehicle accidents can result in serious injuries, such as paralysis, or even death because of the high rate of speed ambulances and police squad cars are traveling.

Michigan law requires drivers to move over when an emergency vehicle, even a tow truck, is approaching with flashing lights. The law requires that drivers take these approaching vehicles seriously and make room for them to do their job.

However, the drivers of emergency vehicles also have a large responsibility. Not only do they need to adhere to proper warning for drivers, but the department is responsible for proper maintenance of these vehicles to ensure their officers, paramedics, firefighters and other first responders will be safe on the road. For example, bald tires can cause ambulance crashes on slick roadways, endangering those inside and the other drivers on the road around them.
