Motorists on Mumbai’s roads are insensitive: Ambulance drivers

Siren-blaring ambulances rushing patients for emergency medical care often struggle to reach their destination because motorists, particularly the younger lot, block their way on city roads, a study has found.

Bikers, private cars, and autos lead this group of insensitive motorists, according to Radhee Foundation, which spoke to 15 ambulance operators, and over 100 ambulance drivers in Mumbai and Thane. The non-profit was associated with the recently concluded the Transport Department’s Road Safety Fortnight.
