Although ambulances have a carte blanche to violate the usual traffic laws when responding to an emergency, heavy traffic and careless drivers can still lead to delays.
That’s why drivers are supposed to pull over, slow down and stop when they hear the siren of an ambulance behind them.
And although ambulances can break the rules, they still can’t drive recklessly, because a bumpy ride could be disastrous for patients they may be transporting.
Watch this video of a highly-skilled ambulance driver from Hungary to see how he navigates the roads and highways of the city, weaving in and out of traffic to transport his patient to the hospital. It’s amazing.
If you’re ever in the situation of having to be rushed to the hospital by ambulance, you’ll want someone like this guy as your driver.
