WATCH | Truck forced to slam on brakes due to 40km/h emergency vehicle rule

Article image for WATCH | Truck forced to slam on brakes due to 40km/h emergency vehicle rule

Dashcam footage has emerged showing how the 40km/h slow down rule affects truck drivers on the highway.

A truck driver has had to quickly slow down to almost half his speed after seeing flashing police lights as he rounded a bend.

The rule was introduced six months ago, instructing motorists to slow down to 40km/h when passing stationary emergency vehicles with their lights flashing.

See the video below.

Truck driver Mike tells Chris Smith drivers are more at risk with winter approaching.

“I only had a couple of seconds to respond to what was going on.

“There are enough natural obstacles… that are causing problems and we’ve created a manmade one.”
