  • Roundabouts

    Drivers are trained to pull over when an emergency vehicle is coming because it’s the law. In the case of roundabouts, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) states that motorists must clear a roundabout if they hear (or see) an emergency vehicle coming.

    Motorists should immediately exit the roundabout at the next right.

    Hear the BEEP where you SLEEP. Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of the home, including the basement.
