Ambulance Cries Wolf Too?

ON the way home each evening, there is one stretch of road that is quite jam up... but jam in Ipoh means only 5 minutes later than usual, so it is not a big deal actually. Ok, let me story about this...

Very often, very very often whenever I go home by this way, there is always this ambulance who also passes by this road around the same time, ie. 5.05 or 5.10pm... and this ambulance always "beeeeboh.... beeeebohhhhh" all the way along this stretch of road and cars like mine, have to give way... now ....that sets me thinking... how come this ambulance always get patients around this time??? Something fishy or not??

So I guess this ambulance drivers wanted to rush back to hospital, either to "punch out" their cards or they are too impatient along this stretch of road.... koret?

Then yesterday, I heard from my colleague.... the road to my office was blocked cos of the State Assembly meeting. Police were everywhere.... and then one ambulance appeared with its "beeeeboh, beebohhhh," wanting to pass through. But the police stopped it... (do they have the right?) ... then after a few questions (according to my colleague la....), the police asked the ambulance to make a U-turn back!!! Meaning to say.... this ambulance just made siren only, actually no patients and not going to pick up any patients too!!!!

My gosh... are they mis-using the siren? What if there are genuine cases, I think by then the drivers do not trust these sirens anymore.... As the saying goes.."Cry wolf too many times, people will stop believing..."

  2. This was an interesting post to read.Hard to believe that even ambulance drivers have gone down to this level.You are correct...when the actual time comes then no one will believe.I wish there was a law to penalize such drivers.

  6. You know, I know, the god knows! These government servants are almost all the same especially the police. They think they've no need to follow the rules and always have the reasons. They can make turns wherever they like even it's no entry! Still remember many years back, 2 police officers blocked my hubby somewhere around Ipoh. They wanted to summon him for talking over the phone when driving. SEE, the problem was my hubby's handphone is NOT even ON! Then, my hubby asked them are they trying to threaten him! Finally, they scared and went off. Malaysia really BOLEH! The government fed them well and we're the one work like donkey!

  19. Funny, I was a patient in an ambulance en route to ipoh general hospital many years back, and they didn't even bother to put on the siren.

    It was afternoon and the sun ray was piercing my body because I only had my boxer on. "Can go faster or not?" I thought to myself, skin burning, heart aching.
