how much over the speed limit are emergency vehicles allowed to travel

Spike:

How fast would you want them to go if they were transporting to the hospital?

Strategy Girl:

If they have their sirens and lights on they can go as fast as conditions will allow.

Ron-QnA-MVP:

Exactly.

Gbob_north:

When I worked for the fire department, they said that the most important thing about driving was to NOT end up calling for a rescue, since that would hinder them from getting where they were going and what they were doing. Most emergency veihicles only speed when they've got a long straight of way and they can see it's safe, but if they flatten one person on the way, they're obligated to stop, and that's not good.

BlackSheep:

as fast as it takes to get where they need to go quickly

Speedy:

From what I remember when my hubby used to be a paramedic...they are not allowed to speed. They are to obey the speed limit. The lights and sirens are to clear the way.

Badbadboy:

In Florida they can go as fast as they like as long as it is "due and prudent", meaning if theres a bunch of traffic at an intersection they have to slow down.

Chris:

I believe they are suppose to stay within the speed limit unless with a police escort. When my girlfriend( not deseased ) had a heart attack, the ambulance went far above the speed limit. I guess because it was a massive heart attack.

Speedy:

I'm glad your girlfriend lived!

Spike:

When you say emergency vehicle what exactly are you talking about? Ambulance? Fire Truck? Police Car? Vehicle transporting human organs?

Irishman9999:
