Doesn’t take a lot of effort to witness outright stupidity and dangerous behavior on the road these days.

Not long ago, while filming some nighttime footage in Floyd, the sound of a siren punctuated the night as pedestrians crossed the road at Main and Locust Streets and a car approached the stop light and intersection for a left turn off Locust Street onto Main.

With the sound of the approaching ambulance increasing and the “emergency vehicle approaching” light flashing above the light, the driver ignored both warnings and turned into the path of the ambulance, and the ambulance driver had to brake hard to avoid the possibility of a collision.

The car driver’s actions were both stupid and dangerous.  Fortunately, the training of the ambulance driver paid off and disaster was averted.
