You were involved in auto accident where the other driver ran the red light because an ambulance was behind her you were going in opposite direction and you had the green light is she at fault?
Technically a driver is not allowed to break any traffic laws to get out of the way of an ambulance, as such she should not have run the red light.. If the ambulance had its lights and sirens on, then you are both at fault since you both should have pulled over.
Ya think it might have something to do with warning about a hazardon the roadside? lol no really! actually they are what you put on to warn other driversthat YOU are a hazard on the roadside due to an accident orbreakdown or stationary queueing traffic or any other danger, ie ahazard.

Depends on patient condition. If there is an immediate threat to life or limb, then the lights and siren should be used. Otherwise, they shouldn't. They come with an inherent risk of distracting other drivers and possibly causing accidents, and in today's "I'm the most important person in the world"… society a lot of people won't even pull over anyway.. Oh, and everywhere has the same laws - if you're running either lights or siren, you run both. Never run a silent lights, because it's illegal. (MORE)

Red wires are used to help to identify them from other wiring which has other colors. Red-colored wires are used in many different electrical circuits, both within and supplying power to all kinds of electrical/electronic equipment. Such equipment may used in many different ways: some may be port…able and designed to be worn or carried by people, such as music players, radios, phones, etc. Other types of electrical and electronic equipment may be much larger and heavier and designed for use in buildings, industrial sites, open land sites, mines, vehicles, boats and ships, aircraft, space rockets, satellites and space stations, etc. You must first understand the technical details of a piece of equipment or a circuit in which a particular wire that is colored red is being used before you can start to understand the purpose of that wire. Even then it is wise not to assume that the wire is carrying any particular voltage, current or signal until you have taken the necessary steps to measure what it is carrying safely and correctly. As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed. . Before you do any work yourself, on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances, always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized. IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB SAFELY AND COMPETENTLY REFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS. . (MORE)

In the US - in most (all?) states that I am aware of - the law requires that, on an un-divided highway, you "Yield the Right-Of-Way" to emergency vehicles. Ambulance and Fire Truck drivers can take down your license plate numbers and you can get a ticket or fine for not yielding to them.
What is the purpose of the small red and blue lights that are mounted on traffic signal poles in the Las Vegas area?
that blue mystery is an indicator light that helps police catch drivers who run reds. Basically, the police officer waits in a safe location off the street where he or she can observe the blue light. When the red traffic signal comes on, so does the blue indicator light. The officer can then det…ermine if a driver entered the intersection on the red light. A big benefit is police can tell whether vehicles are running the red light from either side of the intersection. (MORE)
Why is the red cross required to be placed on any vehicle considered to be a ambulance by Geneva Convention?
It signals that the vehicle is officially an ambulance: if a marked vehicle suddenly begins partaking in combat then it is in breach of the Geneva Convention; if an unmarked vehicle is attacked but later claimed or discovered to be an ambulance, no fault can be placed on the attackers.
It carries oxygen/nutrients to the body systems, and co2/waste away from the body systems for filtration and ventilation.
Phenol red acts as the pH indicator. Turning yellow as the ph lowers (acidic environments) and deep red when the ph is high (alkaline environment)

The Red Cross doesn't have ambulances. They do have vehicles used for Disaster and Blood Services that are usually white with red lettering and a red cross on it.

The strobes embedded in (or mounted above) a traffic signal is intended as an attention getter. (They're generally used more often in rural areas.)Inattentive drivers will sometimes drive right through a red light - particularly if it's been red the entire time it's been in their view. The human vi…sual perception system is geared to notice changes, so a static red is more difficult to perceive than a light that has changed from green to amber to red. (MORE)
It could mean several things, a few I know are: You have to pay extra to be transported with lights and siren's. If it is not a life threatening emergency they tend to not put on the lights. However they also do not put on the lights for someone who has passed away.
It means that the person in the ambulance is not critical, but they still need to hurry and get to a hospital..so it's just a "let us through" kind of thing.
Activation of lights OR siren indicates that there is an emergency . Please be courteous and assume nothing else or lives can be jeopardized. While local laws may vary , the general rule of thumb is... 1. All drivers and pedestrians should attempt to safely move to the side of the road (movi…ng right is typically accepted unless the ambulance is using the right lane to pass). 2. After safely moving from the lane of travel, bring your vehicle to a safe stop . This applies whether the ambulance is behind you or approaching from the other direction. If the ambulance is approaching you and has to turn left, waiting until the last minute will delay their response or cause you to hard brake. Hard brakes may cause you to be rear-ended. 3. Never speed up in attempt to outrun any emergency vehicle. 4. Do not panic and slam on the brakes. 5. Do not assume that the ambulance should go around you. While transporting a patient, medical procedures are occurring in the back. Changing lanes creates unnecessary motion that can delay or prevent procedures from being completed correctly. That said, if the lights are activated without a siren, it is possible that someone just forgot to turn the switch off. It's uncommon, but it does happen sometimes! Don't fail to yield right of way if you see this though, because: 1. We do what is best for the patient. It may still be an emergency. The siren may have deactivated en route to an emergency or while transporting. The best decision for the patient may be to carefully transport with lights only, instead of waiting on another ambulance that is far away. 2. We try to keep everyone happy. Some communities complain about sirens, so they are used intermittently in attempt to please the public. This is especially true in residential areas during late night hours. Hope this helps you help us help others. Take care! (MORE)
Yes, as long as they are attending an emergency call and check it's safe to proceed.
Visible light is all around us. We cannot stop it. The sun sends us visible rays every millisecond. Imagine life without any light. We wouldn't be able to see anything. We wouldn't be able to make a light bulb because we wouldn't be able to manufacture the materials because we can't see. The purpose… of visible light is so organisms with eyes can see, as the visible light is reflected from objects to our eyes and that's how we see. (MORE)
The filament in a light bulb generates heat from the electrical current being drawn through the lamp and that heat is what creates the light shining out of the bulb.

I'm not certain if this was in the books, but in the "Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Series", there was an episode titled, "The Case of the Red Headed League" (Aired 12/27/1954). The Red Headed League was a fabricated organization, with the purpose of getting the owner of a small shop (Jabez Wilso…n), out of his shop for several days. In the time of Wilson's departure, the 'leaders' of the Red Headed League would break into the shop everyday, without raising the suspicion of Wilson, and once inside the shop; would burrow a tunnel from the shop's cellar to the building next to the shop. The building next to the shop was the city bank. In short, the Red Headed League was fake group, that gave reason for Jabez Wilson to leave his shop everyday, so that the shop would be empty. This allows the Red Headed League time to secretly dig a tunnel into the bank next door and then rob the bank. The purpose is to distract everyone while John Clay (Wilson's assistant) Builds a tunnel under Wilson's office in to the bank which he plans to rob later! (MORE)
It has to have its lights and sirens going, and it has to slow down for the red light to make sure the intersection is clear to proceed. But, yes, it is legal for an ambulance to proceed through a red light.
It depends on the Country. For example UK they are Blue, Spain they are Orange, In the US normally Red and White. Though Spain are are going to be changing the colour to match most of Europe, blue.
In some cities, they'll be equipped with a special flashing light or radio transmitting equipment) that will be picked up by a sensor on that traffic signal, and cause it to change. However, not all ambulances have this capability.

It is probably a reference to a system which (if it is installed) "reads" signals from authorized emergency vehcles (law enforcement, EMS or FD) and automatically changes the intersection traffic lights to favor the direction in which the emergency vehicle is travelling.
The blue, six-pointed star with the symbol of a snake spiraling around a staff is known as the Star of Life. The symbol was originally designed by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. After the trademark expired, the symbol was given to the National Registry of EMTs for use as t…heir logo. This symbol has traditionally remained to signify an Emergency Medical Technician or their equipment. Each aspect of the Star of Life actually has a distinct meaning, with each point of the star representing a distinct event that occurs during the typical medical situation. The snake-entwined staff in the center has many theories on its origin, and is the subject of much debate. (MORE)
Meaning it's STOP not GO in one case... In the other, red lights are red because... The light passes through a red filter which colors the light red. It comes to our eyes as red, and we see it as red.
Ambulances are commonly staffed in two person crews. The type of licensure these people have depend on the type of ambulance they are operating in. There are two different types of ambulances: Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS). A BLS truck is staffed with at least one EMT-Bas…ic or sometimes, an EMT-Advanced. The other crew member is either another EMT-B, EMT-A, or an Medical First Responder (MFR). A BLS truck is equipped to deal with most emergencies but will not have all the capabilities of an ALS truck. ALS trucks are staffed with at least one EMT-Paramedic, and either an EMT-B, EMT-A, or another EMT-P. These trucks and crew are trained in advanced methods such as cardiology and pharmacology and are able to do things like EKGs, start IVs and administer drugs, and intubate. An ambulance will always have at least an EMT-Basic, and most ambulances are ALS, meaning they have at least one Paramedic at all times. (MORE)
