    If at a 4-way stop a cop car, ambulance, fire truck, and postal truck pull out at the same time, all with lights and sirens going (except the postal truck), who goes first?

    Definitely don't want to piss off a mail man. They could go postal on you and that would be it.

    Mail trucks don't go code 3. Rules of the road would apply. Whomever has the right of way goes first.

    Deja vu. IIRC, the last time we had a thread like this the mailman won.

    That's stupid. Firetrucks have the potential to save the most lives. They should go first.

    If the lights are on, I'd hope the ambulance went first, then the fire truck, then the police car, then the mail carrier.

    LOL at what was on snopes:

    ". . . once the mail truck is safely to the side of the road, the question becomes trickier. Madison speculated that dispatchers would solve the situation before it arose. If they did not, he said it would make sense for the police car to go first and then the firetruck. The ambulance would go last, he said, because if "five seconds makes a difference, you probably aren't going to save the guy anyway."

    Family Guy: The firetruck can consume up to 8 times its weight. The ambulances will have to wait their turn.

    It depends on which one is being driven by the guy from Grand Theft Auto, he'd probably just drive-by the other vehicles, blowing them up, making the whole thing a moot point.
