A blue flashing light is used by emergency vehicles. If you see or hear one, get out of its path as soon as it's safe and legal. You will see blue lights on vehicles for bomb disposal, coastguard, mine rescue, organ transplant, and mountain rescue in addition to police, fire, and ambulance. Whether the blue lights are on or not, emergency response vehicles are exempt from a number of rules that would hinder them:

- Employ a siren or other audible warning outside of permitted hours

- Leave the vehicle while the engine is still running

- Park in prohibited areas, especially in front of traffic at night

- Stop on zig-zag lines

- Drive in bus or cycle lanes

- Exceed the speed limit (where the driver is qualified)

- Drive either with or against the flow of traffic on the motorway's hard shoulder

- Pass to the right of a keep left sign

- Treat a red traffic light as a give way sign

- Treat a stop sign as a give way sign
