For some reason, people seem to have forgotten the basic rule that one
must follow when one sees, or hears a siren. That rule: Move to the

Yesterday, I experienced this type of ignorance–twice! The first time
was the worst. This guy was driving along his little Nissan Sentra as
an ambulance pulls up behind him. The ambulance continues to blare the
sirens, the guy does not move. The ambulance driver finally gives up on
the guy and announces on his loudspeaker to "move to the right". The man
looked confused as if he had no idea what to do. "Move to the right!",
the driver yelled again, frustrated. Finally, Mr. Sentra moves out of
the way and the ambulance goes on its merry (or not) way.

It seems to be a growing trend to just STOP where you are and not move
to the right when an emergency vehicle approaches.

Lesson: If u hear and/or see sirens, move your ass to the right.
