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.  If it is a police car, how do you know if they want to pull you over?  I’ve pulled to the side at the first available spot for a police car with lights flashing and they just continued on.  Others seemed to just ignore them.

I slow down and pull as far right as possible with my right turn signal on.   When I slow down, they simply pass me on the left.  If they follow behind and mimic my behavior of hanging to the right and slow speed, I find the best possible pullover.   I’ve only had this happen to me on highway roads so not sure how I’d handle it in city traffic if it happened.
