I feel so sorry for the drivers of emergency vehicles when, with lights flashing and sirens blaring, motorists, and indeed pedestrians, don't make every effort to clear the way for them. I hope that when they need help other drivers will be more considerate. I note that this gentleman was 'elderly'; that is no excuse.

I was there the poor bloke in the car had no where to go, and the sirens were only put on seconds before the engine smashed into the car. I feared for his like but was glad to read he is going to be ok.
