The CHILDISH EMTs like to run their sirens at 4 AM Sunday morning to be A
Holes. This is especially troubling when the hospitals have quiet campaign efforts for their patients' health. When I complained to the RPD, they put me off with "well they have their rules." Further questioning revealed that the siren use is up to the EMT drivers. Liar Liar. Pants on fire. I just hate it when their pants don't catch on fire.

Pittsford Vol Ambulance never runs their electronic siren in the evening (they have enough lights to be seen from space), unless it is essential to clearing an errant driver - usually a minority or kid that is blocking an emergency call.

Plus, they're top shelf.

My guess would be because so many city residents refuse to walk anywhere but in the middle of the street. They are probably trying to clear the way of people who should be on the sidewalk to begin with. Hell, you even see Mothers with children and strollers in the street.

Gates are pretty good about not using their siren also. They also are top shelf.
