Apparently breaking a red light to get out of the way of a fire engine
or ambulance is actually against the law - only a police car has the
authority to tell you to go through a red light.  Someone got a fine for
it a few years ago after being caught across the line on a red-light
camera with an ambulance going through beside them, it was in some of
the papers with suitably indignant headlines.
