City of Knoxville Fire Department Chief Jim Mitchell says many times people don’t know which way to pull over when they see flashing lights on an oncoming emergency vehicle. He says when you see an emergency vehicle, yield to the right. He also says do not to stop in the middle of an intersection or block emergency response vehicles. The consequences can be dangerous.
