In the world of Philippine traffic, it’s known that ambulances often get away with breaking rules. These special vehicles carry precious cargo which is why motorists allow them to counterflow or even beat a red light. Sadly, recent news reported about a traffic enforcer who delayed an ambulance route resulting in the untimely passing of a patient.
A netizen named Dan Russell Santos relayed the news on Facebook. It turns out that Dan had a cousin who drives an ambulance. One random day, as they were rushing a patient to the Philippine General Hospital, a traffic enforcer flagged them down.

This was truly out of the ordinary as most enforcers allow ambulances to do as they please. But this man chastised the driver that they shouldn’t always be in a hurry. We’re not sure if this man knew that the patient was a fellow enforcer who got sick on duty.
