There are drivers on our roads and highways every day that don’t move for emergency vehicles
We discovered many reasons why motorists fail to yield for emergency vehicles:
Sirens aren’t heard due to radio volume or the cars’ sound proofing.
Ignorance of the laws regarding proper yielding procedures.
Distracted driving, often caused by electronic and mental factors.
Paying attention to accidents and other vehicles pulled over by police.
Emergency responders approach from hidden intersections
From further research we have discovered that an estimated 200 deaths and thousands of injuries happen in the United States each year because of traffic accidents between first responders and civilian motorists.
