In order to stay clear of traffic during emergencies, Meenakshi suggests that ambulances/fire brigades fitted with GPS systems are integrated with traffic system so that path is cleared for them by appropriate light switching. For instance, as the ambulance comes near a traffic junction, lights will turn green for it to pass through while stopping the traffic across its path.
