Even if, fortunately, nobody was seriously injured in this case, in the worst case, an emergency corridor can mean the difference between life and death. But how long the emergency services get through also determines how long the rescue and clean-up work will take – and when things will finally continue in a traffic jam. It is therefore not only important to make room for the police, fire brigade and rescue service, but also not to close the rescue alley after they have passed through so that resources such as a crane or the road sweeper can quickly reach the scene of the accident. you
