It is a common gesture on the road to make way for rushing ambulances as it is important for them to save the life of the patient inside the vehicle. It’s not just us following the laws on the road but a simple of helping someone to fight for their life.
Despite knowing this as a common thing to do on the road, a private vehicle motorist thought that allowing them to cruise on the road should not be acceptable.
In a viral video posted in Facebook page All About Philippines, an unidentified driver of a private vehicle was shown not paving way for the rushing ambulance. What’s worse is that the motorist did not even accept the mistake his committed. He even had the guts to confront the ambulance driver about it.
The video did not confirm if there is a patient inside but it looks like there is one.
The driver was arguing that it was not right for the ambulance to just go on the road and ignore the traffic but cutting lines.
It looks like the arrogant driver does not know the rules. As stated in Republic Act 4136 or the “Land Transportation and Traffic Code”, emergency vehicles including ambulances should be prioritized on the road and be given a way to go to their situation.
