TYABB Fire Brigade is warning drivers to slow down when passing emergency services crews after a car accident on Graydens Road on Thursday morning.
No one was seriously injured, but the brigade is urging drivers to obey the 40kph restrictions when passing flashing lights.
Fines for failing to comply start at $272.
The 40kph flashing lights rule was introduced to improve safety for emergency and enforcement workers.
Drivers must slow down to enable them to stop safely when approaching and passing enforcement, emergency or escort vehicles that are stationary or moving slowly (less than 10kmh), and have either:
- Red and blue flashing lights.
- Magenta (purple flashing lights).
- An alarm sounding.
