Saving time, saving lives

The Welsh Air Ambulance saves lives by saving time.  Here you can see them saving time at a drop-kerb and crossing point for white cane users in Caernarfon.  I once saw the London Air Ambulance land in Cambridge Circus — the intersection of Charing Cross Road and Shaftesbury Avenue — and it’s amazing to see how they make such skilled manoeuvres in really tight spaces like these densely built-up streets.

I’m sure the disabled, visually impaired, and parents with pushchairs are happy to wait while they perform their vital life-saving duties, and that the lives saved on this mission will justify the smashed paving slabs.
