Am I the only one who almost dies of a heart attack when an ambulance suddenly and unexpectedly screams out its blaring sirens right in front of me? (I'm only 40 years old, think what it must be like for the elderly, just strolling along the street and that suddenly screeches in your face.. I'm sure there must be statistics of deaths caused by UK ambulances?).
And am I the only epileptic sufferer who is almost thrown into seizures every time an ambulance passes by with its strobe flashing lights?
The police cars and fire engines are different; they're not so dangerously lour, high-pitched or strobe-like.
I think the ambulance sirens and their strobe lights should be made illegal and considered as a health hazard itself. They don't need to have the strobe flashing lights, and the volume is simply alarming and excessive! Or they could at least start off from a low volume to give people warning that its there.
Does anybody agree..?
