      Signatures   03/04/2016

      Hi everyone. It appears that the update to the new forum has affected the format of the majority of signatures (adding extra spaces, changing sizes etc.). Due to this, could everyone please check their own signature, ensuring that it complies with the site rules. See the http://www.emergency-planet.com/tos.html/ or http://www.emergency-planet.com/topic/16848-acceptable-signature-sizes/ for more information.  We'll give it a few weeks to give enough time to edit signatures, after that the unnecessarily large signatures will simply be removed. Thanks for your cooperation. Regards, EMP Staff.

So, I'm from the United States of America, and I've noticed that our Fire engines, ambos, and police units look a lot different from European ones.

Mainly ours are a lot bigger while European ones are more sleek and compact. And American emergency vehicles are usually lit up like Christmas trees while in the rest of the world they only have a few lights. Theres a few more differences too but I can't think of them right now.

So is there any real reason to this? Or is it just how it is?

Regarding size, most European cities/towns were never designed for the volume and size of vehicles seen today (for example my local fire station is having to be relocated as the current building cannot actually fit their pump due to both it and the street it's in originally being built for horse-drawn carriages). Not too sure about the lights in most of Europe, but for the UK at least lack of money/budget often comes into it.
