I've seen a lot of bad driving from the American police, firefighters and ambulances in emergency situations recently and it got me thinking. Do these guys have advanced driver training like they do in England? The most recent incident I saw was a police car, with sirens blaring, jumping a red light to sideswipe a van. That wouldn't happen in England because the police drivers are properly trained. The big issue is whether volunteer firefighters are properly trained to drive the big trucks at speed?
