Thai media revisits the law about emergency vehicles after row at Victory Monument

Thai caption: Minivans vs Ambulance dispute

 

TNA MCOT investigated after a blazing row developed between ambulance personnel and minivan operators at the Victory Monument. 

 

The minivan drivers wanted the ambulance to move so they could get in line at their rank. 

 

But the ambulance staff said they had just picked up a very sick person and were giving them a drip in the van. 

 

Moving them was out of the question as it could compromise their health. 

 

A long news report discussed what happened and what the law says. 

 

Laws promulgated in 1979 say that vehicles, pedestrians and those herding animals must get out of the way of emergency vehicles - ambulance and fire trucks - with their horns sounding.

 

Fines of 500 baht are in place for people who fail to do so. People should also follow the requests of emergency personnel.

 

Over the last year or two there have been many reports of violations causing trouble for the sick and ambulance crews. 

 

Some people have even died as a result of selfish drivers who refuse to get out of the way. 

 

Many people online slammed the minivan operators for their selfish attitude.

You have to clear the first hurdle by becoming poster of the year.

Do you have enough money to make sure you will be "elected"?

Why not just declare yourself PM   like the incumbent "democratic soldier" did. 

Isn't that a job reserved specifically for a Thai democratic soldier?

Paramedics in any country are heros in my book. Some of the things they see and have to deal with must be horrific and not knowing what suprize awaits on the next job..

 

..anyone apposing them or blocking them seriously needs their mental health checked and dealing with.

The van drivers here have no care for anyone else, and never consider it could be their relative or friend in the back of the ambulance being treated. Land of Self, not Smiles.
