Pulling over for ambulance?

So today I was driving and this ambulance was coming in my direction, but was in the opposite lane (on a two way road) so....why did the people in my lane decide to pull over? The ambulance wasn't traveling our route. This girl gave me a funny look as I kept driving...eventually passing her. In that situation did I have to? thnx :)

It's the law, you have to yield the right of way to the Ambulance, What if the ambulance suddenly turned into where you were going and hit you, guess what, it would be your fault because you did not yield to the ambulance, fire truck, or police car. Also, you pull over, even on the freeway for a funeral precession, It shows respect.

in my state its actually not a law to pull over. its crazy cuz everyone here does pull over but its being polite. it doesnt matter what lane u should still ALWAYS pull over

It is the law to pull over on both sides of the roadway unless the lanes are separated by a concrete or grassy median.

Yes, no matter where an emergency vehicle is coming from or where it is going...when you hear sirens and see lights you MUST pull over to the right side of the road. You can be ticketed...
