The Highway Code states: “You should look and listen for ambulances, fire engines, police, doctors or other emergency vehicles using flashing blue, red or green lights and sirens or flashing headlights, or Highways Agency Traffic Officer and Incident Support vehicles using flashing amber lights.
“When one approaches do not panic.
“Consider the route of such a vehicle and take appropriate action to let it pass while complying with all traffic signs.”
“If necessary, pull to the side of the road and stop, but try to avoid stopping before the brow of a hill, a bend or a narrow section of road.”
