VOLUNTEER firefighters are pleading with the NSW Government to introduce a law requiring drivers to slow to 40km/h when passing emergency vehicles which have slowed down or stopped.

This includes vehicles parked on the side of the road — such as ambos treating patients, and police assisting in crashes or directing traffic — with flashing lights or sirens.
