To much knowledge for this driver

Just a police car responding to incident but what do I care I've done the knowledge

Actually the taxi driver has done nothing wrong.

If a blue light vehicle is unable to progress through a red light due to traffic they are supposed to leave their lights on but turn off their sirens once they realise they won't get through - they aren't supposed to pressure drivers through red lights as it's dangerous - and then make progress when it turns green again.

It's up to you as a driver to decide if it's safe to move through a red light, if it's not then don't move simple as.

If the police officer gets out and directs you through the red light that's different though, that's failure to obey the direction of a constable under Section 35 of the RTA.

Think it's been explained about as simply as possible yet you still don't get it.lol
When you get that ticket for going through a red light to help the emergency services, see what happens when you appeal to them. They wash their hands of you lad.
And you're driving the public around for a living......... "fit and proper" .... Sadiq might have a point.

Black cabbie!!! Many times I have been in this situation. Each time I have put hazard warning light on, moved and waved for the traffic to stop and let the emergency vehicle to go.

The BC driver is correct. Remember there is a camera there.
No, the black cabbie was wrong. Many times I have let emergency vehicles to pass at red traffic lights. I was expecting pct but got nothing.

Get your facts right, there's been plenty who have been prosecuted. It's illegal to go through a red light unless instructed to by a police officer. Fact
