Boise Police Issue Stark Warning For Local Drivers
When you find yourself driving around in the Treasure Valley--there's a universal rule that we all know to abide by. Everyone has opinions on turning laws, speed limits, and one-ways. Can we all agree that if an emergency vehicle needs to get someplace--it's important that we get out of the way?
In a statement released by the Boise Police Department just last week (which garnered a huge social media response), the department shared just how important it is to yield to emergency vehicles:
If there’s lights and sirens, it’s time to move out of the way. Today multiple agencies responded to a 6 week old baby having trouble breathing--thankfully the baby is doing just fine now, but first responders did face some delays with cars stopped in the middle of the road. Remember if you see an emergency vehicle with lights flashing, pull over to the right so they can pass.
Obviously, a warning like this is enough to make any parent sick. Just the thought of an infant having a life-threatening health issue is terrifying for anyone.
We've been there--you have places to be, them music is turned all of the way up, and that emergency vehicle is awfully inconvenient. Just pull over.
