Safety in numbers is illusory. Folk think that no-one will single them out from the crowd or that the crowd will come to their assistance. If you’re stood in a crowd of cowards, you’re on your own.
Bold statement, but I follow you.
Is it bold? How often have you witnessed folk doing bugger-all to help someone who is clearly in dire need? It takes selfish drivers all their time to get out of the way of an ambulance or fire engine.
Is it selfishness? Or oblivion / panicked paralysis?
Blue flashing lights and sirens are not rare occurances. Why would anyone need to panic?
It’s not rational, but those I see immobile with emergency vehicle bearing down seem to be in a bubble, unaware of traffic around them, then suddenly overcome by too much input e.g. they’re at a red light which means stop but there’s the siren which means emergency and their brains melt. I’ve just talked myself right out of sympathy. They’re not fit to drive 🙂
It happens mick, not all the time or everytime but it happens.
Yes, I’m sure you’re right.
