Is EMERGENCY a foreign word??
Although I find this very upsetting, I’ll keep this short and sweet. Yesterday on my way home from work, something extremely disheartening happened. I’m just minding my own business driving along, and I see some flashing red lights in my rear-view mirror. It was an ambulance. So, what do I do? The same thing any other normal American do. I pulled over. Then I realized that SO many others were not following suit. Spoken from someone whose life has been in jeopardy more times than I care to think about, this pretty much enrages me. When I pull over to allow an emergency vehicle the right of way, that’s exactly what it is. Here’s what it’s not: an opportunity for you go around me! Why in the world would you think that wherever you are going is more important than where the the emergency vehicle is going?! I’m just saying- you should be aware of things like this because I can pretty much guarantee that if you are the one in need of help you would hope that people would pull over for you. 3 minutes could make the difference between life and death.
