Yet another Dubai world record

World's largest ambulance - in Dubai, of course

World's largest ambulance - in Dubai, of course

Dubai has a worrying fascination with having the world’s largest anything. The latest record may not be as awe-inspiring as the tallest building, largest aquarium, etc, but it’s no less interesting.  We now have the world’s largest ambulances.

Up to 20 people can be cared for in the fully equipped mobile clinic, complete with an intensive care unit and an operating theatre.

This is an extremely good idea considering how bad the Dubai traffic often is. And on top of this, from what I’ve seen, an ambulance with its lights flashing tend to get no preferential treatment at all.  At least now, patients can receive more comprehensive treatment before reaching a hospital.
