Traffic rules to be aware of
* In many areas of Canada (with the exception of Montreal) it is legal to turn right (after stopping) on a red light. Drivers may also turn left after stopping at a red if they are turning onto a one-way street from another one-way street.
* Pedestrians have the right of way at intersections and crosswalks, provided they are not crossing against a signal.
* In Canada, you must always yield to a police car, fire truck, or ambulance when their emergency lights are flashing - if they are approaching from behind, you must pull to the right and stop. And when passing either of the three mentioned and/ or tow trucks as well in many provinces you must slow down to 60 km/h or bellow in any lane directly beside the responding vihicle.
* Private vehicles displaying flashing green lights in Ontario are volunteer fire fighters responding to an emergency, and should be yielded to as a matter of common sense.
* In many jurisdictions, including British Columbia, motorists are also required to slow down and move into a non-adjacent lane when passing a stopped emergency vehicle. Slowing to 60 km/h is the norm on a highway.
