I raise this because on September 17 we experienced a graphic display of the results of the Cameron Rd-Chadwick Rd safety botch-up.

While stuck in the stationary traffic, leading south to the Chadwick Rd roundabout, we were stormed by an ambulance, lights flashing, sirens wailing, presumably on a life-or-death mercy mission.

We, jammed between a concrete barrier and a cycle safety track, had no legal place in which to get out of the way.
