Choked Roads, a Trouble for Ambulance Drivers

The growing no of vehicles in the metros today have caused troubles to the ambulance drivers who find it very hard //to carry trauma patients in time to the hospitals.

‘Getting patients in time to hospital through the city's traffic-heavy roads is not an easy one’ says one of the ambulance drivers, who adds ‘despite of being equipped with sirens, ambulance gets stuck up in the traffic especially during the peak hours and it is a Herculean task to reach the hospitals or the accident spots in time.’

In addition, the lives of the drivers are at risk due to fast driving in the busy roads.

‘It is only when the patient is seen by doctors and is declared out-of-danger that we can heave a sigh of relief’, said driver Madhikumar from Chennai, who rushed a trauma victim to the Government Hospital in his Maruti ambulance from Vandalur.

In Chennai (Tamilnadu, India) almost all the road junctions had become choked, even in areas like Adyar, Guindy, Gemini fly-over and other thick traffic zones. Around 200 ambulances operate in this city with some equipped with adequate infrastructure for carrying critically ill patients, who receive emergency care before reaching hospital.

To conclude the trauma care specialists suggested that both traffic police and the motorists could help the ambulances in moving ahead when they spot them and it is high time for the ambulances to get well equipped.
