A horrifying video captured by the Michigan State Police perfectly illustrates why you slow down around stopped emergency vehicles and giving them a lane. This isn't just a nice thing to do; it's law. If broken, it could amount to 15 years in prison and $7,500 in fines if refusing to do so resulted in injury or death of a first-responder. About this film, the MSP commented:

"We talk about slowing down in bad weather and giving us a lane. The trooper saw it coming and was trying to get another car to block the ramp. They never made it. Please give us a lane."

Be warned. This video is graphic.
