Limerick Gardaí stop car for tailgating ambulance on the way to an emergency

That's definitely not on.

An Garda Síochána confirmed that they stopped a car in Limerick after it tailgated an ambulance travelling towards an emergency.

Gardaí say that the car first held up the ambulance and then drove in its wake at a high speed after other cars moved to the side to let the ambulance pass.

Gardaí wrote: "#RoadsPolicing observed a driver firstly holding up an Ambulance trying to making its way through Adare to attend an emergency, the car then followed closely at speed behind the ambulance passing out other traffic who had correctly pulled to the side of the road upon seeing the flashing blue lights & siren.

"This reckless driver has now been issued with a Fixed Charge Notice for €80 & 3 Penalty Points."

The statement went on to say: "Paramedics should not have to worry about other cars tailgating them while on the way to an emergency. If you see an Emergency Vehicle responding, please pull to the side when safe to do so and allow the crew to get safely to the incident."
