With all the recent T accidents, perhaps we need to 'arm' ourselves? Personally, I like the AIR HORNS idea!

Mary,
I don't know about other states, but here in California hearing is not a requirement to obtain a drivers license and operate a motor vehicle. Over the years I've personally known people who are completely deaf and with that handicap still have a license and drive regularly.

IMHO, both video clips amplify the need to LOOK before moving.

I'm sorry, but that young lady must be blind and stupid to not see a fire truck coming with it's lights flashing and sirens going.

I used to drive ambulance and was always amazed at the number of people who were not paying attention while driving.

In some countries (like Russia) nearly every car has a dash-cam for litigation self-defense. There are a lot of smart phone app's for dash-cam functionality from your smart phone.

The photo from the fire truck looks to have a fairly young lady driving. (The age of invincibility!)

I ride a motorcycle daily and drive my T when I can and worry about this stuff. Also drive a Fed Ex truck for work, one of our trucks just got totalled. The guy who hit it, said he did not see it ? scarey stuff out there, be safe - best we can

In the 1980's, I was a fireman on my very first call; on my very first day after graduating from training. The driver of my truck approached an intersection with sirens and air horns blaring. A 1 ton truck, pulling a 30 or 40 foot long goose neck trailer was speeding on the cross street and chose to take his chances beating us through the intersection. He and his truck made it, but we hit his trailer right in the middle. His trailer was totaled and our fire engine was out of service for probably three months, getting a new cab.
