Letter to Editor: Right of way for responders

To the Editor:

I’m writing this in hopes that it will remind people that if you see an emergency vehicle with all its lights flashing, please let it proceed!

Do not walk in front of it, so that is has to stop for you.

I saw this happen recently, the ambulance was trying to come off Mount Desert Street on to Main Street.

Cars had stopped so the ambulance could get out, but the people on the sidewalk walked out in front of the ambulance so the ambulance had to wait for them to get out of the way.

Please don’t do this!
