Drivers Reminded To Watch For Emergency Vehicles

Drivers are reminded with expected congestion on highways the next few days to watch for emergency vehicles and get out of the way to allow them through.  Wasco County Sheriff Lane Magill says if an emergency vehicle has its lights and sirens on, there is a reason for it.  ODOT is reminding motorists that in Oregon, if an emergency, roadside or tow vehicle is on the side of the road displaying warning lights, you are required by law to move over a lane, and if you cannot do that safely or you are on a two-lane road, you must slow down to at least five mph under the speed limit.  If you’re heading to the “path of totality” to view Monday’s solar eclipse, be prepared to spend a lot of time in your car in heavy traffic.  Take plenty of food and water, and make sure you fill up your vehicle with gas before you go.
