View Full Version : Schooled an ambulance today...

11-03-2005, 09:02 AM
Please...even with his lights flashing, he was no match for the Audi. He was going the speed limit (45) with his lights and sirens on, and it felt real awkward to pass it, seeing as somebody was probably injured in there...but no one goes the speed limit on this road, 50 minimum...

Apr boost gauge comes today, anyone know what gauge wire to use, and what size crimp ring I need?..I figure 16 gauge will do and a 9,6 mm ring...just to make sure.

uh, lame... [down]

You have got to be kidding

11-03-2005, 09:10 AM
Well that's real cool. Do you pass school busses and fire trucks too? I guess you got in front of it and pulled over like your supposed to? Retard.

11-03-2005, 09:15 AM
last i checked u were supposed to get out of the way of an ambulance

11-03-2005, 09:20 AM
Maybe he saw the hazards flashing on the ambulance, and figured it was on!

here in north america that's considered illegal.

glad you're proud that you're interfering with someone in an emergency situation.

11-03-2005, 09:21 AM
I'd have passed him too. It obviously wasnt too much of an emergency if he was going the speed limit.

11-03-2005, 09:43 AM
ok, bad joke...i get it...There is no sarcasm button on here. I did pass the ambulance, but it wasn't "on." Who passes an ambulance in an emergency?

seriously though, would the wires from an aftermarket speaker (pos and neg) with the quick disconnect connectors on one end work with the boost gauge? standard wire, sooo 16 or 18 gauge?

11-03-2005, 09:49 AM
those wires would work fine.

a slow moving ambulance may mean a patient that can't be jostled.

it is technically illegal for an ambulance to speed or run stop signs too. i was a paramedic once. 91b10 combat medic / airborne medic in the army.

Of course the wires would work. They are just standard gauge stuff. As long as they weren't being used to run a ton of current, they'll be fine.

11-03-2005, 09:53 AM
The wires are brand new, so good. Thanks.

Utterly attrocious, are you really in Kabul, Afghanistan?

11-03-2005, 12:54 PM
if i was in afghanistan i may have run the ambulance off the road

11-03-2005, 01:39 PM
if i was in afghanistan, i would see the ambulence and speed off in the oppistite direction, the flashing lights and the siren beeping faster and faster indicates it probably has a bomb ready to detonate

I think he lives in Texas

11-03-2005, 05:26 PM
Holy shit that's funny. Lighten up, guys.

11-03-2005, 05:50 PM
yeah I laughed :)

"Even with his lights flashing, he was no match for the Audi"

I was rof'ing by that part. And if any of you are going to ask, yes, I love cutting off and passing school buses. They ruin the highway!

11-03-2005, 08:20 PM
I laughed and it felt good!

11-03-2005, 10:02 PM
thanks guys...some people on here are way to high-strung...it's not like attacking personal integrity, it's poking fun at previous posts...

i race ambulances, firetrucks, school busses and ANYTHING with a handicapped sign on the back too!!!

Funny story actually, a young ambulance driver pulled up next to me one night at a red light when I had my Wrangler during the summer and threw the thing in neutral and started revving the engine. When the light turned green he took off like a bat out of hell. I didn't try to race him, just thought that it was funny that someone with such a serious job would be so wreckless
