Bad Drivers Delay Ambulances

Our poor driving skills could be costing emergency services vital time when they're responding to call outs.

Panicking, stopping in inappropriate places and not noticing emergency vehicles at all are some of the most common problems.

Steve James trains ambulance drivers in the South West.  He said: "People's cars have changed so much now - they're so quiet, they've got good insulation, you're listening to the CD player and sometimes we drive from A to B and we don't always concentrate and listen to what's going on."

We are being advised to listen out for the sirens, and take time to work out what the best option is.
