Use of emergency siren in private vehicle..... A mess
« on: February 03, 2019, 01:01:51 PM »
Emergency siren used on emergency service vehicles such as ambulances, police cars, and fire trucks. These are quite loud and harsh. The use is quite understandable as they need to be heard form long distance so that other vehicle can make way for them. This is a world wide practice. In our country we have a terrible tendency of not allowing these vehicles to move easily by giving them side. One can argue that we don't have sufficient road of facilities to leave space for these vehicles. However this is not why I am writing this up. For long we are also seeing some private vehicles like car and motorbike also use these siren to create a panic among others so that they can achieve some privilege. As using siren here and there without any common sense is very common in our roads, these private vehicles fitted with emergency siren crate a havoc in the road. Unfortunately our law enforcement people are quite silent in this. They should understand these siren are only for emergency vehicles that also include law enforcement agencies. It is definitely illegal to use these siren in private vehicles and the owner must be punished for doing this. We can not show sympathy for ambulance/ fire truck because of lack of resources and civic sense. Wider spread use of emergency siren in private vehicle will make our mind set like this "surely this is a private vehicle and I am not giving him side"- while may be someone is fighting with death in the ambulance or a fire truck is desperately trying to reach somewhere to save someone.
