As of Jan. 1, 2021, under the Motor Vehicle Act:
When an emergency or service vehicle is stopped on the highway and has its flashing lights on, New Brunswick drivers MUST:
- Slow down to one-half the posted speed limit and proceed with caution;
- Make sure it’s safe to proceed, then move over to the left, away from the vehicle.
- If there are two or more lanes of traffic, the driver must move into another lane
if it can be done safely.
This will ensure that drivers won’t collide with an authorized emergency or service vehicle or endanger anyone outside these vehicles.
