Of course, if you're not careful on your motorcycle (I am just a man of many segues today), you might need one of these. A red crescent, which you can see on this ambulance, is the equivalent to our red cross at home. Ambulance drivers here are just that, drivers. They have no medical training, not even basic first aid, and their job is only to get you into the van and to the hospital. Needless to say, that's a lot of time lost when someone's life might hang in the balance.
