I've recently seen a couple ambulance shapes vehicles Roaming in Winnipeg streets that aren't ambulances. Maybe I just haven't seen them before but as a pedestrian it kind of bothers me when I'm thinking of crossing a street and I see what looks like an ambulance coming down the road and it's a locksmith or RV repair service. Is this a new trend or am I simply slow on the uptake? Either way I don't think its a great idea for businesses to usurp ambulance vehicles towards their own ends. Am I wrong to think this way?
It wouldn't be so bad if efforts are made to make them clearly not look like emergency vehicles. But when they're covered in emergency lights and whatnot, it's just confusing.
