Police cars will no longer be used to escort ambulances to hospital, the PSNI has said.
The decision follows a crash in County Fermanagh in 2011.
An ambulance, following a police car, collided with a lorry and overturned near Brookeborough. The lorry pulled out onto the road after a gap between the police car and the ambulance developed.
Police have said trained motorcycle teams will now be used.
It is understood that when used, one of the motorcycles could stay with the ambulance, while the other could travel ahead stopping traffic and closing junctions.
However, the Ambulance Service said they have been told that those teams may not always be available.
In the January 2011 accident, a doctor was seriously injured and two nurses and two ambulance crew were also hurt.
The ambulance had been transferring a patient with swine flu from hospital in Enniskillen to Belfast.
The final moments of a plane crash in County Galway that killed two men are relived in a report released last week.
The final report of the Air Accident Investigation Unit (AAIU) into the fatal crash at Crumlin East, Cornamona, Connemara on October 12, 2009 has found that the pilot may have become disorientated due to deteriorating weather conditions.
The ill-fated plane was destroyed on impact when crashing into mountain ridges in Crumlin East, known locally as Maum Dearg, killing pilots Captain Derek Furniss (32) and Cadet David Jevens (22).
The duo were on a military training exercise and Cadet Jevens was one of a class of cadets coming to the end of their Pilot Wings course.
The preliminary report published last year noted that the Pilatus PC-9 aircraft was conducting a Visual Flight Rules navigational cross-country training exercise from Casement Aerodrome, Baldonnel via Carrigallen in Cavan and Maum to Galway Airport.
The aircraft departed Baldonnel at 4.20pm on October 12 and was followed by two other aircraft on the same training exercise at 15 minutes intervals. It was last recorded by Shannon radar over Lower Lough Mask at 4.55pm at an altitude of 1,300ft on course to Maum.
Last week’s final report the aircraft flew initially northwest and later southwest towards Maum, County Galway.
