What not to do when you see flashing ambulance lights

from Globe and Mail

I first encountered ambulance chasing in New York. I'm not referring to lawyers looking for clients among the newly injured. I'm talking about the automotive version, the practice of using ambulances that are on call as a means to beat traffic. I was in a cab driving through evening traffic when an ambulance, with lights flashing and sirens blaring, appeared behind us. The cabbie slowed and moved to the side and the ambulance shot past us. It seemed like standard driving protocol. But, just as soon as the ambulance passed, the taxi driver swerved right behind it and accelerated. He bird-dogged the ambulance for about 10 blocks as we cruised through lights and whizzed past other cars. I felt like the president in a motorcade. more
