Drivers need to yield to emergency vehicles

Dec. 18, 2012

Public Forum:

Two drivers were recently spotted racing out of Pick 'n Save's parking lot in an attempt to beat a siren-shrilling, horn-blasting fire engine approaching the lighted intersection.

Why did these two individuals think where they were going was more important than where the fire engine was going? I nastily wished it was their homes in flames.

Emergency equipment takes precedence over ordinary folk facing green lights. When did we become a nation of the ignorant, the rude, the self-centered, jeopardizing lives because we need to be first?
