What the H are you talking about?  I didn´t say anything about moving without lights and sirens, that´s when they become "emergency vehicles" and not normal traffic vehicles.  ¿Comprendes?

I am pretty sure that Mexico's traffic engineers do not have drivers licenses or know how to drive or follow the traffic laws. Heck it may be requirement that they don't.

Looks like those concrete barriers are going to weed out some less than qualified drivers or at least after they run out of money for repairs.   :D

I know of Rotary Clubs in other areas in Mexico who are outfitting paramedic/first responder motorcycles. They carry the what they need for the preliminary response and can quickly respond, including situations in villages when the street is blocked by a propane truck, or the more remote areas where the roads make truck traffic difficult. They can zip through the traffic. Also much cheaper to operate so there can be several in an area, with a true ambulance only called out when needed,

Perhaps there is another highway overhead, freeing traffic congestion below.

Of course, emergency vehicles mean emergency situations, and not routine patrolling or moving a vehicle from one location to another under normal circumstances.  But since you brought it up, when do you think a fire, police, or ambulance has received a ticket for an illegal turn or any other traffic violation when not responding to emergency situations?  Do you think unmarked cars with plain clothes FBI agents, or Russian Gestapo, or police in third world countries are being ticketed?  They can do whatever they want, legal or not.  The ticketors and the ticketees, all belong to the same brotherhood.

You need to hire a good drama coach. Your "Holier than Thou" shtick is a bit lame.

It kinda looks like Boston before the "Big Dig". The old Pierce elevated.

yes it is an elevated road in New York

No, it is the "el" where trains run before going underground when it becomes the subway.

Okay but the same point. Not that I'm seriously suggesting it. It is kinda beautiful in its ugly fashion. Now that's engineering.

Edit; Actually it is the Riverside viaduct.

Wow, I really thought it was the El in Queens. I do not think I was ever under Riverside Dr only on it.
