What is an emergency vehicle?
The Michigan Legislature defines them in section 257.2:
(1) “Authorized emergency vehicle” means any 1 of the following:
(a) Vehicles of the fire department, police vehicles, ambulances, privately owned motor vehicles of volunteer or paid fire fighters, or volunteer members of an emergency rescue unit if authorized by the chief of an organized fire department, a county sheriff, or the director of the department of state police, or privately owned motor vehicles of volunteer or paid members of a life support agency licensed by the department of licensing and regulatory affairs if authorized by the life support agency.
(b) For purposes of section 698(5)(c) during an emergency, a vehicle owned and operated by a federally recognized nonprofit charitable organization that is used exclusively for assistance during that emergency.
(c) For purposes of section 653a, a road service vehicle giving a visual signal by means of a flashing, rotating, or oscillating red or amber light. As used in this subdivision, “road service vehicle” means a vehicle that is clearly marked and readily recognizable as a vehicle used to assist disabled vehicles.
In addidtion to “typical emrgency vehicles,” Michigan changed the law in 2018 to include almost all vehicles stopped along the highway with it’s emergency/warning lights flashing. When in doubt, and it is safe to do so, move over. If you don’t, it could cost you $400!
