    Shutting the gate after the horse has gone ?

    What is going on the day on our roads is poor judgement at all levels

    This morning I heard a whole amada of safety and emergency vehicle on the move with hooter and sirenes blasting going hell for leather presumably to deal with an insodent.

    I wonder why the need to drive so fast ? as ariving several seconds late or early hardly makes a difference especially using a four wheel vehicle .

    I respect the fact that timing is every thing when it comes to saving lives however not at the expence of other road users.

    The other day an E.M.O. truck going hell for leather almost cleaned me out head on.
    Question does he stop to save me of just keep going.

    If it is speed is what it takes to saves lives then may be a motor cycle driven by a first responded medic could be the answer with only 2 seconds .

    You would think the good samaraten who called for hely would indicate the urgency of the matter.

    Makes me wonder how many potential accidents happen while E.M.O. and others are on their way.
