STAN'S DAILY VIEW ON LIFE
WEDNESDAY 27th OCTOBER 1999

            TODAY WE SEEN THE FINES FOR PEOPLE WHO GET IN THE WAY OF AMBULANCES INCREASED TO $272 AND IT IS ABOUT TIME . HOW OFTEN DO YOU SEE PEOPLE GET IN THE WAY OF AMBULANCES AND DON'T MOVE OVER FOR THEM . IT IS SO STUPID TO SEE THESE PEOPLE NOT TRY AND GET OUT OF THE WAY . DON'T THEY REALISE THAT IT COULD EASILY BE A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH . HELL THEY SHOULD HAVE MADE THE FINES A WHOLE LOT LARGER . HERE IS WHAT STAN HAD TO SAY .

            YES WELL I SEE NEW LAWS WILL INTRODUCED IN N.S.W.TO IMPOSE HEAVIER FINES ON MOTORISTS AND PEDESTRIANS WHO ARE CAUGHT OBSTRUCTING AMBULANCES . I MUST SAY I NEVER REALISED WHAT A BIG PROBLEM THIS WAS , BUT IT SEEMS A SURVEY BY THE N.S.W.AMBULANCE SERVICE FOUND AN AVERAGE OF 50 AMBULANCE ACROSS THE STATE EACH DAY ARE OBSTRUCTED ON THE WAY TO A JOB .
            UNDER THE NEW LEGISLATION THE PENALTY FOR DELIBERATELY FOLLOWING AN AMBULANCE HEADING TO AN EMERGENCY WILL DOUBLE TO $272 . WHICH I DON'T THINK IS NEARLY ENOUGH FOR THE ACT OF STUPIDITY . DELIBERATELY FOLLOWING AMBULANCE , DO PEOPLE DO THAT AND DRIVERS WHO EITHER TAILGATE AN AMBULANCE , DON'T PULL OVER FOR THEM  , DRIVE THROUGH THE RED LIGHT OR STOP IN THE MIDDLE OF TRAFFIC WITHOUT WARNING WILL ALSO FACE FINES . AS WELL AS PEDESTRIANS WHO RAN ACROSS THE ROAD WHEN AN AMBULANCE IS APPROACHING .
             WHO'S GOING TO PULL UP THESE PEOPLE , WHO'S GOING TO STOP THESE PEOPLE , WHO'S GOING TO FINE THESE PEOPLE , WHOS GOING TO HAVE TIME . THE AMBULANCE PEOPLE WHO ARE RUSHING TO A MAJOR EMERGENCY . ARE THEY RESPONSIBLE FOR TAKING DOWN NUMBER PLATES FOR ALL THESE PEOPLE . I DON'T KNOW WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT
