    Yes, we are “humans” – unfortunately a lot of humans can’t think straight in a crisis. I bet that someone, the one closest to the incident and with their head screwed on, pulled over to get out of the way causing a sort of domino effect for others to follow further down the line/lanes. Which is great. Sometimes it pays to be sheep.

    • There have been occasions in my life when I had hoped for such behaviour from people on our roads only to be disappointed. That is why when I came across this video I thought it to be a good idea to share it on my blog.

  2. Great video, good for them! If only people acted like that more often.

    what a wonderful and encouraging bit of video.
    so often we see the opposite of the good in humans.
    I would think breathing in that tunnel is a danger in itself. all the exhausts and fumes.

    • I have been to Tokyo and Seoul Tammy and I can assure you that such behaviour in both places would be exactly like this. Both are populated by remarkable people.

    I saw this video somewhere else and I thought the drivers were all taught to do this. Of course, people here are taught to pull over for emergency vehicles but so many don’t.

    Motorists in Northern Ireland are very good about pulling over to allow emergency vehicles to pass. I think they’re well aware that they might be the next person the ambulance has to be dispatched to.

    • Yes, I had responded to your comments on my post on the dangers of roads everywhere as to how NI is perceived to be a very civilised society as far as traffic is concerned.

  9. I often think it depends on your early childhood upbringing…OR when some incident in your own life, makes you more conscious of certain facts.

    However, that doesn’t mean everyone has the same experience, and can be very telling at quite the wrong time/s…

    Obviously in this clip…it has much to do with the culture of “caring for others” and as someone already said “maybe it could’ve been you needing care”
