Why The Word “Ambulance” Is Spelt Backward On The Front Of Ambulance Car

Welcome my dear reader.

We are all aware that one of the fastest way to carry a patient to the hospital is to use the Ambulance.

The Ambulance has saved a lot of patients and it is still saving many lives.

In front of every Ambulance vehicle, there is an inscription which reads ‘ECNALUBMA’.

This is the exact spelling of “Ambulance” but the above is the reverse of the spelling.

Let is find out why?

Whenever an Ambulance vehicle move on the highways, they expect or it is expected of every driver to move by the side of the road for the Ambulance car to pass.

One way for a driver to know that an Ambulance is right behind his vehicle is to use his or her vehicle’s driver’s mirror.

So when the driver looks in the driver’s mirror and sees the Ambulance from the mirror, the correct spelling of the Ambulance will show in the driving mirror as if the driver was looking at it directly. Per the mirror’s function, the spelling “ECNALUBMA” will be reversed to the true spelling which is “Ambulance”

This is the main reason why the writings on an Ambulance car is written in the reversed state.

Thank you very much for reading.
