Do you ever worry about the response time of paramedics in our growing city, especially during times of high traffic? To combat this, the Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services will soon use motorcycles, according to Basem Wasef, the About.com Motorcycle Guide.

The new motorcycles will be used to get to people in need more quickly, and to reach those in places where ambulances can't go. It is expected that response time will improve significantly; possibly as much as 60%. The BMW motorcycles will be outfitted in emergency lights and high-tech medical equipment.
