    Sec. 25-131. Approach of police, fire-fighting, etc., vehicles.
     
    (a) Upon the approach of any vehicle listed in paragraph (a) of section 25-132 giving audible signal by siren, exhaust whistle, or air horn designed to give automatically intermittent signals, the driver of every other vehicle shall immediately drive the same to a position as near as possible and parallel to the right-hand edge or curb, clear of any intersection of highways, and shall stop and remain in such position unless otherwise directed by a police or traffic officer until such vehicle shall have passed. This provision shall not operate to relieve the driver of any such vehicle from the duty to drive with due regard for the safety of all persons using the highway, nor shall it protect the driver of any such vehicle from the consequences of any arbitrary exercise of such right-of-way.
     
    (b) Violation of this section shall constitute failure to yield the right-of-way. (Code 1959, § 20-119)
