Another hint is to use a couple of vehicles like a bus and a truck, and work it out on that basis. Remember that town streets are often wider than rural ones. The road I live in is one way and is still the same width as when it was completed in 1874. currently with cars parked on both sides you can normally get an 8 wheel dustcart down the middle.

Hope this is of some assistance.

A further tip - don't use black paint for the road surface, it will look wrong. I tend to use a mixture of greys with brown weathering. Additionally patches and filled trenches will be a different colour, just look next time you walk down the street.

Two tone sirens were definetely in use by the early/mid 60's as were blue lights.

Yet more to confuse the issue.
