TIL: It’s actually FASTER for an ambulance to go through a street with protest people on it than through vehicular traffic! Makes sense really. People get out of the way of EMS a LOT faster and more easily than cars and trucks can. I knew empty ambulances are a common crowd dispersion tactic (after all, if they know there’s a blocked street *usually* they can reroute)… but I *didn’t* know this. That said, I’d get out of the way, but I don’t do protesting. http://www.citypages.com/news/what-really-happens-when-an-emergency-vehicle-comes-upon-a-protest-photos/412534183
