- Have we done the Idiot BMW Driver Blocking an Ambulance Yet? We must have….
It’s interesting that he went on to put in a complaint against the ambulance service. No winners in this situation.Posted 4 years agobrooessMember
Can Emergency Services not press charges if a member of the public stops them going about their duty? Police can arrest for obstruction can they not?
Either way, we all know being in a car does funny things to peoples’ heads, there’s kind of nothing new going on here really.
On the other hand, please no-one post links to the Metro ever again, please. My innocent mind has been poisoned!Posted 4 years agoaracerMember
Our walk to school takes us past a traffic light junction on a main ambulance route (where we cross the main road). I often see stupidity similar to that – my favourite is when somebody a few cars in front of the ambulance pulls in to let it past and then some idiot between the ambulance and them slowly pulls out to go around them.Posted 4 years ago
so what is “right of way”? (other than a public footpath or bridleway) pretty sure if read through highway code will find only “priority” and “give way” no “rights”
It is widely thought that you have right of way if there are no obstructions on your side if the road. Generally most people will give way to you if you are already coming through a narrow gap on their side of the road when they get there. There are however a large number of drivers that think that they have right of way against everyone on “their” side of the road. It is of course all a pile of misguided mince.Posted 4 years agotomhowardSubscriber
Hold on. The story reads that BMW man is pootling along, meets a tesco van come the other way, then ambulance and paramedic car pull up behind BMW man. BMW man is pilloried for not moving, yes?
So he has a tesco van in front of him and 2 emergency vehicles behind him, assumedly on a street too narrow for two vehicles to pass. Where is he supposed to go?Posted 4 years agokimbersSubscriber
Guy was obviously in the wrong, that kind of red faced belligerence + BMI = heart attack waiting to happen, He better hope that an ambulance can get to him swiftly should it ever happen
The metro is part of the Mail’s Axis of Evil I believe, It truly is a terrible excuse of a ‘newspaper’Posted 4 years agozilog6128Subscriber
The video is a bit shit but I can’t see an ambulance in it at all so either it’s behind the tesco van or it was behind the BMW but it’s reversed and gone a different way.
The car behind the BMW looks like it might have a bright yellow bonnet – if it is the paramedic car could it’ve come from the other direction and not actually have been following the ambulance?
The only certainty is that the “reporting” from the Metro is a load of shit.Posted 4 years agobinnersSubscriber
Its as if someone deliberately wrote a piss poor piece of performance comedy – maybe at the Edinburgh fringe – to lazily confirm all the stereotypes of the type of person who drives a certain type of German vehicle. I presume they got the shot of his golf clubs in the boot?
And after complaining that he’s been unfairly abused as being a bit of a ****, then going on to dispel any lingering doubts in anyones mind by making a formal complaint against the Ambulance service. Self-awareness, as well as charm, clearly not a quality he’s over burdened with?

I guess the story would be a lot different had the patient died in the ambulance. I wonder if Mr Waugh would think differently if someone he knew required a slightly delayed ambulance to the rescue?Boba FattMember
Doesn’t matter what size he is, what car he drives or who is really in the way of who – just get out of the way you massive bellend
How much of a prize **** do you have to be to hold up the emergency services? Probably the same type of **** that brings up a knuckle dragging wazzock that thinks it’s ok to attack paramedics or firefighters when they’re out on a job
Obviously he’s only concerned and apologetic now the videos out there showing him up to be a knobPosted 4 years agoampthillSubscriber
Sorry from the Daily Mail
As the two drivers argued over the situation, a paramedic car and an ambulance arrived at the scene but were forced to stop behind the white BMW which was blocking the entrance to the tunnel.
