If you are driving and hear a siren?

try to determine in which direction the emergency vehicle is approaching, keep aware of traffic in the front and the rear and sides of your position and then safely move to your right to let the vehicle pass.

When an emergency vehicle approaches should you stop immediately wherever you are on the road?

No! The most important thing is to make room for it to safely pass you. Do this by moving to the right or left, depending on the rules of the road in the country concerned, stopping if approaching an intersection, or if otherwise needed for safety. If the emergency vehicle is in a lane to your left and is unimpeded there is no reason to stop or move to the right unless other traffic might get in its way. If the emergency vehicle is stopped on the shoulder, you should safely move to the left or right and SLOW DOWN until you have passed! Stopping where you are can block traffic, preventing the progress of the emergency vehicle.

What should you do when an emergency vehicle is approaching from behind on a one lane road with sidewalks on each side instead of shoulders?

The general rule is to move from the path of the emergency vehicle wherever possible. You are still responsible for following other traffic laws including avoiding vehicles and pedestrians. If you can safely move to the side far enough for the vehicle to pass, you should do so. Otherwise you should continue to where it is safe to get out of the way. A driver must consider where it is safe and legal to enter private property such as easements, parking lots, and driveways.

If you can't safely move your car out of the way there is really not much else you can do than to stay put.

If you hear a siren close by but cannot see the emergency vehicle you should follow the law in your jurisdiction, which generally is to pull over safely until you are able to determine that you are not in its path.When being approached by an emergency vehicle using sirens and light/s, state laws in the U.S. generally require motorists to immediately pull to the right side of the road and wait for the emergency vehicle to pass. If stopped at an intersection with two-way traffic, remain stopped until the emergency vehicle passes.

What must you do when approaching a person who is riding or leading upon or near the roadway?

You must slow your vehicle and if need be move into another lane to pass safely. Do not honk or flash the lights at them. If they are in the road and holding up traffic then the horse and handler should move to the shoulder as soon as possible to allow a vehicle to pass.

How fast are police allowed to drive in emergency situations?

As fast as they can safely travel.

Can police pass in no-passing zone in a personal car enroute to emergency?

Police should not be in route to an emergency in a personal vehicle. However, it is unlikely any court would fault them for passing in a no passing zone if they were indeed in route to an emergency, regardless of what they were driving. So,legally, probably not. Realistically, absolutely.Another View: More information is needed in order to answer. If the vehicle was operating with authorized emergency equipment it must be assumed that the vbehicle quite possibly may have been an unmarked police vehicle. Otherwise how did the questioner even know it was being operated by a police officer? Police, fire, and emergency medical personnel enroute to an emergency MAY operate their vehicles contrary to the normally prevailing laws, PROVIDING that it can be done so safely.
