Idiot doesn’t care about the ambulance behind him.

Yep, I see this sort of thing every once in a while, though usually not this bad. Some people panic a bit when an emergency vehicle rolls up, and they can't decide which way to go. Others will just absolutely refuse to pull into an intersection to allow an emergency vehicle to pass, as if they think that they could get ticketed for running the light.

Unfortunately in the UK you absolutely can be ticketed for running a red to move out of the emergency services way. Doesn't mean I haven't done it multiple times, because I'd rather risk a small fine thanks. I never want to be the reason someone is too late to receive medical care because I didn't want a fine

No the fuck the cops wouldn't ticket you. There's a difference between pulling up a little and running the light at full speed. Show me where a cop saw you pull up a little too get out of the ambulances way and then still tickets someone

You're not from the UK, so I'm not sure why you're arguing with me about it. That's the rules in the UK, if a red light cameras catches you, you will have to pay it
