In an emergency, this corridor clears the road for emergency responders and saves lives.

Do not forget: When there is a traffic jam on a multi-lane road, drivers are obliged to form a corridor for emergency vehicles. The corridor must be formed between the left and the other lanes.

If you fail to form a corridor for emergency vehicles, you will be fined at least 20 Euro. Every driver should keep in mind that no time should be wasted in case of an emergency.

Similar rules regarding corridors for emergency vehicles apply in Switzerland, Slovenia, and the Czech Republic. In Austria, forming a corridor for emergency vehicles is a traffic law.
