Being picky, but (at least out here) they're not exempt, they're just
allowed to break them :-) eg in an emergency, an ambulance can go through a
red light, but if they cause an accident by doing so, the driver will be
charged (& they have been)

Adding emergency=yes is useful only where it adds information to mapper or
> data consumers.

So when would you use it? In the past, I've marked access=no +
emergency=yes on thing like paths leading down onto the beach, as life
guards , ambulances & police are allowed to drive onto the beach; & also on
driveways leading into the back of fire & ambulance stations, which they
use to bring their vehicles back into the garage, but that now seems a
little bit pointless?
