(A)   The driver of a vehicle entering a public street or highway from a private road or drive shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles approaching on a public street or highway.
   (B)   The driver of a vehicle upon a street, or highway shall yield the right-of-way to Police and Fire Department vehicles and public and private ambulances when the latter are operated upon official business and the drivers thereof sound audible signal by bell, siren or exhaust whistle. This provision shall not operate to relieve the driver of a Police or Fire Department vehicle or public or private ambulance from the duty to drive with due regard for the safety of all persons using the street or highway, nor shall it protect the driver of any such vehicle from the consequence of any arbitrary exercise of the right-of-way.
