Congested Traffic: Strategies for Reducing Risk
- Look and listen for emergency vehicles.
- If you hear a siren in the distance, check carefully left and right before entering the intersection ahead of you.
- If an emergency vehicle (such as a police car, fire engine, or ambulance) displaying flashing lights and a siren is approaching an intersection, wait to enter the intersection until the emergency vehicle has passed through the intersection.
- Being careful and patient just might save a life.
