(San Antonio, TX) -- Paramedics are reminding people to pull-over when ambulances are driving with their sirens on during emergencies. They tell KSAT-TV sometimes drivers don't follow the laws, which require them to pull-over to the right of the road when ambulances are driving by with their lights and sirens on. Some drivers even pass-up emergency vehicles. Fire engineer and paramedic Phil Laws with the San Antonio Fire Department says when drivers don't move over, it slows down paramedics' treatment of the patient.
