What should you do if you are being overtaken by an emergency vehicle flashing its emergency lights?

Pull over if you can do it safely to let them by. The reason they only flash the lights without sirens is because they do not want to upset the people they are going to take care of. Some people with heart conditions could die if they get excited. Some other emergencies require the people involved not to be subjected to the noise of the sirens. They do not want to get them upset. When they have ONLY THEIR LIGHTS flashing, they may be reacting to life-threatening situations just the same as when the sirens are going. You should always pull over for them.
