Seeing an ambulance waiting at a traffic signal with its siren blaring is something that pains my heart. How I wish something was done about it! Why can’t the vehicles coming from the opposite side stop and give way for the ambulance? (I know it is easier said than done) Is it a must to follow the signal when a person’s life is at stake? Can’t the police do anything about it? I remember waiting at the signal at the Mount Road-Venkatanarayana Road junction once when an ambulance, inside which was sitting a lady crying with a baby in her arms, was waiting for the signal to turn green for some 10 minutes! Agreed it was peak hour and the traffic was heavy. But, couldn’t something have been done about it? Yesterday too I saw an ambulance waiting for some 5 minutes at a signal. It is at moments like these that I feel so damn helpless!
