Letters: Drivers not pulling over

Ambulance and emergency vehicles have priority on the roads

In recent times I had the necessity of receiving the Sooke ambulance services for two trips to the hospital on two separate occasions.

The ambulance driver and assistant were very courteous and professional in caring for my health.

My wife as a passenger, with ambulance sirens in place and flashing emergency lights, saw that many drivers of vehicles on the road were not pulling over to let the ambulance through as required by law. The trips being emergency, it was disconcerting and discouraging to have this happen on our roads.
