After a long day at my internship, sometimes all I want is a little silence once I return home. But, my roommates and I often joke that an hour doesn’t pass without hearing ambulance sirens.
According to the lead in a Washington Post article, I'm lucky I made it home from work.
About three times everyday in the District, someone walking on a city street gets hit by a vehicle and an ambulance races to the scene. This year, four of those people have died.
It’s no wonder the first week in Washington D.C. students get warned not to listen to music or talk on the phone when out and about.
