Ambulance! pull over! (even if that's a stupid thing to do)

So, there are two lanes of stationary traffic, waiting at a red light; an ambulance with sirens a-wail is trying to drive up through the middle of the two lanes just as the lights go green and you, YES YOU! - the drivers in the two cars at the front of the queue, you think that the best course of action is to edge forward six inches so that your front wheel is almost on the kerb.

Did you not actually notice that there are cars behind you, blocking the path of the ambulance, cars that cannot move out of the way PRECISELY BECAUSE you have stopped, blocking the road at a green light?

Even if the ambulance somehow managed to leapfrog all of our cars YOU HAVEN’T ACTUALLY MOVED ENOUGH TO LET THE IT PAST YOU!


“the it”?
