Just when you probably thought that the bizarre habit of people leaving angry notes on emergency vehicles had gone away, up pops not one but two such angry notes which were left on a London Ambulance Service vehicle.
One of the notes left on the windscreen of the ambulance read: ‘park responsibly’ whilst the other one said: ‘do not block others parking space’.
An image of the notes was shared by @LAS_NorthWest with the following:
‘Paramedic Marzio found these unhelpful notes on his ambulance at an emergency.
‘We try to park well, but in an emergency, we need to park close to the house as quickly as possible.
‘We also don’t want to have to carry/wheel sick patients in public halfway down the road!’.
Of course, this is not the first time that we have reported such notes being left on emergency vehicles.
But here at Emergency Services News, we had hoped that, by sharing our previous articles, then members of the public who are inclined to write these sort of notes and leave them on emergency vehicles, might have started to think before putting pen to paper.
As @LAS_NorthWest pointed out, in an emergency no reasonably minded individual would surely expect the emergency services to spend vital minutes hunting around for a parking space?
We all know that anyone waiting for emergency help would, quite rightly, be in an uproar if the emergency services turned up at their address stating that there had been a delay in getting to them just because they had to find a parking space.
And yet there are still some incredibly selfish people out there who think that their right to move their vehicle is more important than the life of a neighbour.
We urge our readers to share this article in the hope that, if someone goes to leave their premises only to find that an emergency vehicle is blocking their drive or parking space, then the person who is inconvenienced keeps in mind that someone’s life could be in the process of being saved.
