Selfish NYC Driver Waiting For Parking Spot Refuses To Move For EMS

“This driver can be seen waiting for a spot in front of a hydrant while Engine 53 Arrives at the scene of the fire. Rescue 1 then arrives and proceeds to pull up behind the vehicle, intending to find a safe and easy way for their firefighters to exit their rig without blocking traffic or getting hit by a car. The driver first waits for a passenger and then appears to consider taking the parking spot. After I stopped filming I asked the man why he didn’t move and gave him a quick lecture on how drivers are supposed to pull away from emergency vehicles. One firefighter, who I know personally, was injured in the fire and transported to the hospital. This video should prove to be a good learning experience for drivers, NEVER BLOCK EMERGENCY VEHICLES!”
