It says that when you're driving on a road with two or more lanes, you've got to move over at least one lane away from any emergency vehicles that are stopped with their lights flashing – like ambulances, fire trucks, police cars, maintenance or construction vehicles, and tow trucks. If you can't change lanes safely, you've got to slow down.

Even with the law in place, the danger remains a constant threat. The Roseville crash captured in the video below didn't occur due to speeding, distraction, or adverse weather conditions.
