    I have lived in New Bern and trust me these ambulance drivers are very irresponsible and take over the highways and drive like they are running a Nascar race. I am not surprised and it is only a matter of time before they kill someone. I have almost been run off the road on Highway 70 by a white and yellow ambulance. Christ people, take consideration of others when you are on the road. We have rights too.

    All this needed was a lawyer to hit the rear of the ambulance, because of chasing too close...
