    That’s what you get when DOC policies say you have to remain in sight of the ambulance, but also say you have to obey all the traffic laws including posted speed limits. The ambulance can use its flashers and run every stop sign between Vandalia and Mexico, but the DOC car is just an ordinary vehicle.

    How does that result in an ambulance being rear ended? If you’re obeying all traffic laws then you have left adequate stopping distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you. Just sounds like inattention to me.
