A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Lights and sirens from the rear

Written June 29th, 2016 by Hasso Hering

I wasn’t sure what to do when, driving up I-5 from┬áSouthern Oregon┬áMonday, I heard a siren and saw an ambulance coming up from behind. I didn’t think the standard instruction in the Drivers’ Manual — pull to the right and stop — made any sense in this case.


Get out of the way, but how?

Most afternoons, around 4 and 5 p.m., Albany’s Pacific-Ninth one-way couplet is a busy place, traffic plugging all available lanes, backing up at lights. And when you hear sirens and see the flashing lights, what you’re supposed to do to let the emergency vehicles through is impossible and may actually hold them up.
