  1. I have been watching the way other motorist have no respect for the sound of the approaching siren. Some vehicles never pull over and the emergency vehicles have divert to the middle of the street in some cases. Or completely go over to the opposite lane. I often wonder if when the attend driving school, they are not informed, that they need to pull over once they hear and see those flashing lights.

  2. Does anyone know whether emergency vehicle operators such as fire,police and ambulance drivers need (must have) special driving qualifications in order to operate these vehicles?.

    • Actually, it doesn't matter if they do have specialised training, especially the ambulance drivers. Its us motorists who decide that there's no emergency and therefore have no need to respect the approaching sirens. To us, an emergency is only when our family mmembers are the ones on board the ambulance
