Road Safety Message: Move Over For Emergency Vehicles

With another busy spring and summer approaching, Ontario drivers are reminded to clear the way for emergency vehicles by slowing down and moving over.

Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act, since 2009, has required that drivers slow down and proceed with caution when approaching a stopped police car, fire vehicle or ambulance with emergency lights flashing. Since 2015, this has also included tow trucks. Drivers must slow down and move left with caution. If the highway has two or more lanes, drivers must slow down and also move over into another lane, if it is safe to do so. If approached from behind by an emergency services vehicle with its lights flashing, motorists must pull to the right and stop to allow the emergency vehicle to pass safely.

Please remember the Move Over Law and keep emergency services personnel and our partners in the towing industry safe on our highways.

Quick Facts 

First Offence - $400 plus 3 demerit points upon conviction

Second Offence (within 5 years) - $1,000 to $4,000, possible jail time up to 6 months and possible suspension of driver’s licence for up to 2 years.
