Because if we don't, the fire truck stops, the firefighters grab their
bikes, and pedal on to the fire in city centre?

Shall we also tag oneway:emergency=no on motorways to indicate that
the motorway might be shut down and the emergency responders might use
the other carriageway to access site of a major crash?

Or how about maxspeed:emergency=none?

In some jurisdictions, emergency vehicles responding to an emergency
are not subject to legal limitations.
