Thai consideration: They actually get out of the way of an ambulance

Thais have been praised for being thoroughly considerate in their driving habits and finally getting the message about making a path for emergency vehicles. 
 
Following a spate of cases last year when people failed to get out of the way of ambulances taking sick people to hospitals comes better news from Chiang Mai. 
 
A "Thetsaban Muang Ton Pla" ambulance crew posted a video of what happened when they had to take an emergency kidney patient to the Maharat Nakorn Chiang Mai hospital downtown. 
 
There was dense rush hour traffic on Friday morning but motorists considerately made a path for the ambulance to get through. 
 
Sanook said it was a good news story showing consideration for others. 
 
One person died in the traffic last year after being blocked and getting to hospital too late. Other cases made national news. 
 
Thaivisa notes that the fine for doing that is 500 baht though there have been calls for it to be increased.
