    On the way to the station. Really. It's 12 kilometers away and there's traffic.

    When you bring up the video...save it to your Favorites [or Bookmarks] and you will be able to return to view it agin. If you have REAL PLAYER, you should be able to DOWNLOAD it to your pc by "touching the actual video on the screen," then select DOWNLOAD.

    Hope this helps.
    Even easier is this, since the poster wanted to save the video for training purposes.

    http://vixy.net

    Plug in the URL to the video and click Start.

    Download the resulting AVI video.

    Profit!

    I'm sure the cop was trying to make sure the incident actually got reported back home.

    Being as though the offender was from the next province, and several hours away, it would have been easy for the driver to take his ticket and dissappear. I too would hope they release the truck if the Chief arranges/comes for it's pickup, etc...

    I just noticed that the story you posted doesn't make mention of where the truck is from. The original story I read earlier this week indicated that it was a North Bay FD truck. The story started out "North Bay Fire Department is without one of its vehicles for the next 7 days..."
