Make Stopping of Ambulance a Criminal Offence

Dear Friends,

In recent past we have seen lot of news about an Ambulance being stopped for some VVIP . The purpose of Ambulance is to take a sick or injured person to a hospital in case of an emergency. When a person is being taken to hospital every minute and every second is very crucial for timely treatment and saving of person’s life. It really pains us a lot when we hear an ambulance has been stopped for letting the vehicle of some VVIP go first. This is an inhuman and cruel act. Life of every citizen should be given equal importance to that of a VVIP (be it a President, PM, CM, Governor or any other dignitary). A VVIP can surely wait for few minutes to let Ambulance go first.

Recent Developments

Lately we have seen some positive change in people giving way to an ambulance. Govt / Police also is making it as a rule so that public will follow it. A recent article hints at that plan.

Also we seen a great message by Narendra Modi that every citizen is a VIP and there should not be red beacon on cars

Big Question

Why stopping of an Ambulance should be allowed for a VVIP? Time has come for us to request Govt to bring a law for not allowing that

Some of us might be thinking,

  • What is the benefit for me if I request for this?
  • How does it matter if a person dies due to an ambulance being stopped for a VVIP?

Just imagine, what if a family member or a friend of ours is in that ambulance and loses their life. Do we really want to wait till that happens for requesting the Govt to bring a change?

There needs to be a law that stopping of an Ambulance by anybody (VVIP or any Person) should be treated as criminal offence.

Thanking You,
