"ambulances can't get though traffic"

I had to take a work colleague to Southmead after an accident. Next time I will go to bath it will be quicker. There were ambulances with flashing blue lights unable to get though the traffic on southmead road because parked cars were parked everywhere. A 2 mile journey took 35 mins which in an emergency situation can't be good. The new hospital night have new shiny wards but not a lot of help if your stuck in an ambulance and can't get there.
