Although this picture surfaced on the internet a while back, it highlights exactly why it is vital to think about how you have parked your car before you walk off and leave it.
In the image below, an emergency ambulance wastes vital minutes as its crew try to squeeze through a tiny gap that a Volvo and Mercedes driver had left.
Thankfully, the crew managed to squeeze through the gap without any damage to the ambulance.
But it did add minutes to their response time.
Had the emergency vehicle been a fire engine, it would have had no choice other than to ‘push’ the parked cars out of the way.
