Sirens = Get the Hell Out of the Way

What is so difficult about that?

 

Hear a siren, pull over to the side of the road. At the very least, stop.

 

Pedestrians are not exempt from this. I can’t count the number of times where I hear a siren and I see people walking across the street as if there is nothing going on. And because people are sheep, one person goes and everyone else thinks it is okay so they follow suit.

 

The last thing we need is an emergency vehicle plowing a pedestrian on the road who was too stupid to pay attention to the noise and flashing lights.

 

Why do I get so pissed? It could be my house on fire, a friend who needs the ambulance, your Mom or Granny in distress.

 

It could be anything or nothing. The few seconds that we lose while we wait for an ambulance, fire truck or police car to go by is not going to impact your life in a negative way but it may matter greatly to someone on the other end.
