Usually when you see an emergency vehicle with its lights on you naturally pull over or give them space. It’s not only a law but it’s common courtesy especially when they are putting their life on the line. Well Wisconsin deputies pulled over the Wiener mobile for disobeying the pull over law.
The Move Over Law (2001 WI Act 15, WI Statute 346.072) in Wisconsin states,
If a motorist sees a vehicle on the side of the road with its emergency lights flashing (red, blue and amber), the motorist is required to move out of the lane closest to the vehicle if possible.
Sheriffs gave him a verbal warning. Funny enough the internet has starting making punny remarks to the incident. See for yourself below. Do you pull over for emergency vehicles?
What really happened on that fateful day with the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile?
