Item description for Emotional Distress: Proving Damages by Jon R. Abele...
What causes emergency vehicle accidents, especially with sirens and flashing lights in use? Where do they most often occur? What can emergency services personnel do to prevent these accidents? And, finally, what laws govern the use of these vehicles?
Stephen Solomon, an optometrist who has studied perceptual issues for over thirty years, has updated Part One of this complete guide to the safety issues surrounding emergency vehicles. You will learn about the problems with flashing lights, sirens, retroreflective tape, and the color of the vehicle. Many of these safety devices are used in a way that limits their effectiveness. Part Two of this book discusses the law of emergency vehicles on emergency runs.
The drivers of police vehicles, fire trucks, and ambulances have the right to ignore, with due caution and acting without reckless disregard, the rules of the road. This section provides a thorough study of the statutory and case law in the fifty states plus the District of Columbia.

Very Informative Jan 30, 2006
This book has answered alot of questions I had about whether or not something would be considered "emotional distress". It sets the guidelines and also provides help should you want to file a claim, if you meet the criteria. I am still figuering things out, but this book is helping very much.
