The ambulance was not going emergent, so the cop had the right of way. The cop was a *** b/c he got right up on the ambulances ***. The rear view mirror can only look in back to see how your partners doing with the patient. The side mirrors can only look to the side.
As for your logic when it comes to who should go first is a little flawed.
So you think that a stolen can matters more than your mother who's in the back of my truck, who is dead, and we are doing cpr and pushing drugs?
You think that a fire engine is last because people who are not trained, nor have protective gear, can help people inside a fire? Creating more victims? Ok............?
Here's how it is.....really is....
If they are all going lights and sirens in the same direction or to the same call, then its whoever is fastest goes. Which is actually how it happens as you listed.
Would we yield to one or another? Nope.
Lets put it in reverse.
Fire engines are SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOW. If a ambulance came up on on one, we would pretend they have no idea that we are behind them, and go as far around them on the right, to avoid any collision. Normally, we pass on the left, but that would scare the **** out of them b/c the left of a emergency vehicle is for them only. We also wouldn't pass them in general unless it was just silly to stay behind them the whole way.
The Police would do the same thing. They can rocket accelerate around us and be find. Compared to EMS and FIRE, they are david and we are goliath.
