Drivers, please give way to ambulances with their blinkers and sirens on.

Don’t be like this fella – the driver of white Citroen SLJ1709M.

He was caught on camera refusing to give way to a private ambulance despite getting honked at repeatedly.

The incident took place on last Friday (23 Jun) along the PIE near Stevens Rd exit.

The ambulance was sending an elderly woman to hospital after she suffered a fall.

The owner of the ambulance company said:

“Only after 1.5km did he decide to give way, causing lots of stress for family members and the driver to rush the patient to the hospital. Even the police will give way to ambulances and we have encountered many considerate drivers who let us pass, which I appreciate. Do not hinder the jobs of ambulance drivers because it is very stressful, especially when we have to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on the road.”
