RE: What should I do when an emergency vehicle is behind me with lights flashing?
Most two lane roads do not allow for pulling over to the side and most Costa Ricans do not appear to do anything to allow emergency vehicles to pass. Â If it is a police car, how do you know if they want to pull you over? Â I’ve pulled to the side at the first available spot for a police car with lights flashing and they just continued on. Â Others seemed to just ignore them.
A lot of the time non traffic police drive around with their lights flashing. Â I used to try and pull over and get out of the way, but I soon realized that they were not in a hurry or trying to pull me over, the flashing lights are just on. Â My rule these days is to try and pull over if there are flashing lights and a siren.
