I’m not at the ‘Is it just me or…..?’ stage of a newspaper columnist yet, thank God, but there are things that severely test my patience.
One of them is ambulance chasers. I’m not referring here to dodgy legal firms but those drivers who use the path ambulances cut through traffic jams to help them get to their destination quicker.
Not only is it morally bankrupt, it’s dangerous too. The emergency workers are likely to be trying to save lives or en route to do so. Also, when the ambulance has swept past, cars that moved out of the way onto pavements and side roads are looking to rejoin the carriageway. It could be your friends or relatives that need help so please don’t do it!
