Move Over for Emergency Vehicles

We know you have places to be, but it’s important to remember that if you’re driving and an emergency vehicle approaches you with its lights or sirens on, please move to the right if possible. 

Emergency vehicles turn on their lights and sirens to respond to high priority calls, which means it could be a life and death situation. The City of Southlake Police and Fire Departments ask that you expect emergency vehicles to use the left lane.  

Please don’t stop in front of the emergency vehicle or pull to the left. What should you do if an emergency vehicle is behind you with its lights and sirens on? 

  • Never drive distracted. 
  • Use blinkers. 
  • Yield. 
  • Safely move to the right.
