During the month of April, we are again emphasizing Operation Right Move.

Sponsored by the Los Angeles Fire Department and California Office of Traffic Safety, Operation Right Move seeks to educate motorists about the importance of yielding to ambulances, fire trucks and police cars when they are responding to emergencies.

Nationwide, nearly 16,000 collisions occur each year because a growing number of drivers fail to Pull To The Right when emergency vehicles approach using their lights and sirens.

Learn how you can make The Right Move!
