    In comparison, yung mga private na ambulance providers, may protocols and etiquette na sinusundan pa rin yung karamihan na nakakasabay ko. If they counterflow and run through intersections, may diskarte pa rin.

    OT: Talo ng MMDA video yung mga action scenes sa pelikula. Walang sinabi si Bourne Legacy.
    Meron kasi talagang mga driver na ganyan, gumalaw lang ng 1 car length yung isang lane, singit na kagad. They don't bother to look forward and see which lane generally moves faster. Not only do they delay themselves, they also inconvenience others with their frequent lane changes.

    While ambulance drivers do technically have the right of way, jeepney drivers aren't psychic. The Ambulance came from far back, and the jeepney driver's view of it was obstructed by traffic. Even if the jeepney driver was speeding, he was set to cross before the red, and would have had right of way if it weren't an ambulance he hit. Still.. bonehead. When you see a yellow, slow down and proceed with caution.

    That said, the ambulance driver was insanely stupid. Even if you have right of way, a siren isn't a force-field. You have to exercise due diligence while driving. The ambulance should have slowed down approaching the intersection to make sure the way was clear before proceeding.

    Wouldn't be surprised if he ended up doing janitorial work for the next two months while they repair that ambulance. By the law, there will be no consequences for him, but that was a very painful lesson in proper situational awareness for the ambulance driver.

    *Yes, I've driven ambulances. Some of them slightly sideways.

    Dito lang yata sa Pinas na ang Yellow light means Speed up rather than slow down.

    MMDA to manong PUJ driver... "Alam mo ba kung ano ang ibig sabihin ng yellow light."

    Manong PUJ driver: Opo ser, ihataw po para di maabutan ng red light.

    Jeepney driver: "Di ko narinig yung ambulansya at di ko napansin na yellow light na pala..."

    I wonder if the idiotic PUV driver is still plying the streets.

    I was about to comment about right of way dun sa isang thread about taxi vs. SUV. Eto rin palagi ko sinasabi sa kapatid ko.Kahit right of way ka pa, iba pa rin ang nag-iingat. Suppose nasa right of way ka at nabangga ka. Okay, menos gastos ka kasi either sagot ng insurance mo or nung nakabangga.... pero your vehicle may never be the same as it was before your accident. Buti sana kung superficial lang, like gasgas or dent. Idagdag mo pa yung sobrang hassle.
