AN ambulance driver in Spain has been fined for blocking the pavement while attending an emergency on the Costa Blanca.
The incident happened next to the San Marcelino health centre in Valencia when the emergency vehicle parked on part of the pavement because a badly parked car was obstructing the access ramp for ambulances.
According to local media the health worker argued that there was a private vehicle parked obstructing the access ramp and for that reason he had stopped on the pavement to get the patient to the ambulance.
It is claimed that despite fining the ambulance driver the police did not take any action against the driver of the private car saying that the yellow lines and the parking prohibition square were faded.
As a result of the incident there was delay attending to the patient, who had heart problems, while the traffic ticket was issued.
