Well I wanted to have a mirrored image for the title of this post but it seems the tools provided by blogger dont help!And I am very lazy to search for them elsewhere....

I was in city the other day and I noticed this ambulance parked near a service shop.Dont worry! no one was injured or on the verge of getting injured as long this ambulance stayed there.I noticed that the word ambulance was spelled in reverse print kind og mirrored image on the windshield of the ambulance. I was told that the real purpose behind this was to let everyone who's driving in front of the ambulance to read and know that its an Ambulance.Make way for it. Are people so dumb that they wont recognize the vehicle by its colors and siren alone.Is it really neccesary to write it in the mirrored format so that poeple can read "AMBULANCE" through their rearview mirrors of their vehicles?

I think its a very clever idea! The first person to come up with this idea must have been a Lex Luthor! U look in the rearview mirror, u can read the word ambulance behind u.Of course while you're reading, you don't see where you're going,so u crash, and u need an ambulance.
So I think maybe they're just trying to expand their business on the way back from the service centre.Hmm...So the next time u hear a siren dont concerntrate much on reading out the word Ambulance.....just give way for the vehicle....
