    I block traffic all the time, but when an emergency vehicle pulls up I get my ass out of the way.

    Alot for that driver to juggle from a methods,conditions, and safety wise. This is one sided view.

    When anybody gives me any crap about blocking a street I just point at the house and say, "Go tell that lady to quit buying :censored2:."

    Back in the day I tried to avoid confrontations with idiots. I would use my Unlimited Parking Spots card with the idiots. No cell phone or security cameras to record everything.
    The one town I delivered in even took my suggestion of posted delivery only spots in the business district that was enforced.

    Wasn't even anybody in the ambulance. The driver was just a runner-gunner!

    Ok this troll sucks. Blocking traffic is one thing. Blocking an emergency vehicle for a whole minute is quite the other story.

    We're emergency vehicles also, and we trump them.

    At least that's what they tell us when they send us out in a class 3 blizzard when all the roads are closed.

    They try and tell us we are considered emergency vehicles and are allowed on closed roads because we deliver medication that some people may desperately need.

    And, I might agree, but then why don't we just deliver the medicine and then come back? Why deliver all the Amazon when the roads are closed?

    Think they go in the back, and use a trauma bandage like we would use a dr bag?

    Looked like he had at least one airpod in. Playa probably had them in both ears jamming out...

    My thoughts, if management get the video they could easily start discipline for having earbuds in both ears causing him to not hear the siren as quickly as he should have.
