RED MEANS STOP!

ESPECIALLY when the lights are flashing! We just came back from dinner and as we were at a red light, an ambulance, fire truck and Fire Chief all had to come to the same intersection from the cross street and turn left onto the street across from us. Most people stopped, waited through the many red lights and let the emergency responders through. MOST.

There was one jack ass that was driving in front of the fire truck. He was not pulling over or even slowing down, just trying to stay ahead. He had to stop at the intersection because all directions turned red. As the fire truck pulled up, the light turned green for it, and this jack ass pulled right through the intersection as the truck was turning left. As the others came through, there were other idiots who blew through the intersection as the trucks were coming close so that they could beat the truck turning.

IT IS THE LAW THAT YOU MUST PULL TO THE SHOULDER WHEN AN EMERGENCY VEHICLE APPROACHES!

I don’t know the exact wording but it is something like that. You are not important enough to be able to blow off these laws and potentially cause an accident. Sorry, I had to get that off my chest because it pisses me off to no end when people do that. By the way, you are also supposed to pull over and let a funeral procession pass. VERY few people do that.
