Ambuchannel
« on: March 12, 2019, 12:48:07 PM »
Over the past week or so I have been watching the Ambuchannel on you tube. It's basically dash cam footage of Dutch ambulances heading out to emergencies and the ride back to hospital, nothing special about that!
Except.....There never seems to be a shortage of medics for any emergency, they are very professional in what they do, but the thing that stands out for me and leaves me absolutely amazed is:-

All the roads they travel on, be it motorway, "B" roads, country lanes... I have not seen one pot hole NOT A ONE!!!!
Come to think of it I don't recall seeing any "scars" of a repaired pot hole they just don't seem to exist.
Maybe it's because we have got their share eh!
We are all taught history but we never learn from it

Many of our roads and pavements are in a terrible state.
Reporting them does very little to get them repaired - they send a little person out with a tape measure to see how deep they are - if they are not big enough to swallow a car they are left  ::)
