That doesnt make much sense:rolleyes:
I belive you will find that to be the case in most states. I guess your partner(s) that blow red lights/stop signs dont know that they can do jail time, as well as be sued in civil court, if they hit and kill someone doing this.
I cant belive its 2005 and I'm still hearing about this stuff. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
There's supposed to be an ordinance IN Chicago(past along time ago) not to use sirens while on the Interstate/expressways/Lake Shore Drive/or highway routs. However if you use lights you also use sirens, always(orders from my medical director and company). Also almost every road is a highway rout:rolleyes: , so if you go by it you wouldn't be useing L&S most of the time. CFD aslo uses L&S on them. Yeah they do act odd or ignore us, but then again we're not allowed to speed, so nothing above 55mph or lower posted speed limits. Pluss we're anticipating stupid acts. During that call I didn't exceed 45mph~lots of debris on the shoulder, even a green flowered seat cushion from a chair.
Yeah it is 2005, what would make ya think things would change? Stupid pepole bread stuipid children.:) As do thebigcheese's racoons.;)
