Just a reminder that when an emergency vehicle is coming up behind you moving at a high rate of speed and lights flashing, please do the courteous thing and pull over to the side of the road. I had a lady in the lane next to me that could have slowed down and pulled over but instead she stopped in the middle of the road, the sheriff's officer barely had enough room to pass between us.
