Going east is an ambulance, lights and siren on.

Who has the right of way?

Certainly time is of the essence in an ambalamps, therefore should supersede the other two?

What about a cop going the west with his flashers on?

So, this senerio, order of right of way...

1. School Bus (with activated lights)
2. Emergency vehicle.
3. Funeral procession.

After reviewing the senerio again, I correct my answer..


Reasoning, the Bus and Funeral procession are on a N-S road. The ambulance is on and E-W road.
In bed, according to prophesy.
