    • The first thing one is told is to secure yourself first in an emergency. If it is to dangerous to help out then you wait for the professionals and do not risk another life.

  16. Hope it wasn't the part of La Clery where vehicles can hardly pass through because an irresponsible mechanic in the area chooses to park all his derelict vehicles on the roadside....
