Book Description: If you are litigating accidents involving emergency vehicles, you know that many factors contribute to hazardous operations. In this well-documented volume, Stephen S. Solomon, firefighter, EMT, engine captain, fire commissioner, and optometrist shows how vision is an integral component in accidents, and in their prevention. Whether fire truck, police car, or ambulance, an emergency vehicle's fast speed, bells, whistles, sirens, and flashing lights contribute to excitement-laden and potentially hazardous situations. For the attorney or investigator who must reconstruct events, it is important to understand how some of these supposed safety features actually cause rather than help prevent accidents. The knowledge you will gain about the anatomy of the eyes will give you the edge in accident reconstruction. You will learn how inadequately trained emergency vehicle drivers make for a potentially lethal situation.
