Driving around lately I have noticed that ambulances and fire trucks and even work convoy trucks carrying orange barrels have signs on the back saying “Keep Back 500 Feet.” That’s close to two football fields….In order to read and act on said sign you would of course have to violate it.
Trying to picture the traffic maintaining 500 feet of separation with any such vehicle. What is the fine for non-compliance?
Is there any sense to this whatsoever? Do they just mean “stay out of the way, sudden stops likely”?
We deserve better
