Make Way Please / Survival + Emergency

Make Way Please
Make Way Please

The ambulance has to encounter obstructions due to heavy traffic. Regulating the existing traffic signals based on the movement of ambulance alone cannot achieve the free movement of ambulance. Drivers of other vehicles are not aware of the presence of ambulance behind them due to noise. Therefore a visual signal in addition to the existing signals is necessary to alert other vehicles to pave way for the ambulance. The ambulance driver uses a wireless device 'Make Way Please' present on his dashboard to communicate his presence on the road and the information is conveyed to other vehicle through the extra traffic light attached.
