    Blacked out windows,aggressive drivers

    I am glad The Lancaster Police Department will use the grant to institute "selective enforcement" for speeding and aggressive drivers , utilizing moving and stationary patrols on an "overtime basis."


    The other night a car with blacked out windows was tailgating and intimidating a 70 year old woman. She was scared because the car came out of no where and tailed her for quite some time. It seemed to fall back then return to tailgating her , time after time. She couldn't see who was in the car.

    Where are the COPS when you need one she thought? Then at a two lane intersection the car pulled along side her , It was a police car with blacked out windows - you know like the ones they fine others for , having impaired or obstructed vision. Maybe LancasterPD can use some of the over time money to teach a drivers coarse - and strip the window decals from the cop cars.

    OH! Do as i say , not as i do - or you will be arrested !

    Maybe they were on their way to an emergency call in your neighborhood. Did that thought ever cross your mind??
    Probably not.
    On the other hand, I'm sure a jerk-off like you would be the first to complain about a slow response by the police if it was you or your family that needed assistance...

    NYS Traffic and Vehicle Law

    1104. Authorized emergency vehicles. (a) The driver of an authorized
    emergency vehicle, when involved in an emergency operation, may exercise
    the privileges set forth in this section, but subject to the conditions
    herein stated.
    (b) The driver of an authorized emergency vehicle may:
    1. Stop, stand or park irrespective of the provisions of this title;
    2. Proceed past a steady red signal, a flashing red signal or a stop
    sign, but only after slowing down as may be necessary for safe
    operation;
    3. Exceed the maximum speed limits so long as he does not endanger
    life or property;
    4. Disregard regulations governing directions of movement or turning
    in specified directions.
    (c) Except for an authorized emergency vehicle operated as a police
    vehicle or bicycle, the exemptions herein granted to an authorized
    emergency vehicle shall apply only when audible signals are sounded from
    any said vehicle while in motion by bell, horn, siren, electronic device
    or exhaust whistle as may be reasonably necessary, and when the vehicle
    is equipped with at least one lighted lamp so that from any direction,
    under normal atmospheric conditions from a distance of five hundred feet
    from such vehicle, at least one red light will be displayed and visible.
    (d) An authorized emergency vehicle operated as a police, sheriff or
    deputy sheriff vehicle may exceed the maximum speed limits for the
    purpose of calibrating such vehicles' speedometer. Notwithstanding any
    other law, rule or regulation to the contrary, a police, sheriff or
    deputy sheriff bicycle operated as an authorized emergency vehicle shall
    not be prohibited from using any sidewalk, highway, street or roadway
    during an emergency operation.
    (e) The foregoing provisions shall not relieve the driver of an
    authorized emergency vehicle from the duty to drive with due regard for
    the safety of all persons, nor shall such provisions protect the driver
    from the consequences of his reckless disregard for the safety of
    others.
    (f) Notwithstanding any other law, rule or regulation to the contrary,
    an ambulance operated in the course of an emergency shall not be
    prohibited from using any highway, street or roadway; provided, however,
    that an authority having jurisdiction over any such highway, street or
    roadway may specifically prohibit travel thereon by ambulances if such
    authority shall deem such travel to be extremely hazardous and would
    endanger patients being transported thereby.

    Another ridiculous thread.

    So, an un-named 70 year-old woman was tailgated, and it turned out to be a cop.

    And this gives a bunch of people reason to bash the cops.

    Has anyone ever driven behind a 70 year-old woman, and NOT tailgated??

    Yeah, just like the North Tonawanda cruiser that blasted past me at
    100 mph+ on the NYS Thruway between Batavia and Pembroke with one (driver) in the vehicle. No emergency lights. I was hoping that I'd see it upside down around the next curve.

    I mentioned this in the threat about cop testing and you didn't read it, yet you've already cast a misinformed opinion. The cop was maybe 20 yards from planting the front of his car into a mother pushing a stroller with three kids.

    I'll paste here what I posted in the other thread, so I can save time to jerk off later....ehh, maybe I'll just polish off some Moorcock instead.

    "Probably a better driver being that I drive so much."

    Funny, that would also apply to cab drivers and pizza delivery kids, wouldn't it? You wanna bet they've got more tickets than the zero that your assumed skills supposedly justify?

    Last weekend, some idiot-cop blasted up my residential street, WOT, for three blocks, and cut a corner like he was driving a racecar. There was a mother pushing a 3-kid stroller maybe 20 yards from the sidewalk/curb on that corner. No lights, no siren. 4000+ pound car on damp pavement.

    Better driver indeed.

    Tailgating is against the law.
    So you say it is a justifiable act to tailgate and break the law.

    Please tailgate me if your ever behind me. I can always use a new car.

    Let's not forget the EC Sheriff who last year thought it a good idea to chase a motorcycle at over 100mph in an effort to issue a ticket for the passenger on that bike not wearing a helmet. Ending with the sheriff going airborne comes down sideways in the road, skids several 100 feet, goes off the road in a neighborhood and crashing his squad car into a tree almost ending his life and could have been others.
    So let me see if I have this right. The cop chased at 100 mph to issue a ticket for a safety violation. The biker didn't want the ticket so a high speed safe chase ensued almost ending the life of the sheriff and could have killed untold numbers of innocent people. All in the name of a safety violation.
    Makes good sense to me.
    For weeks after that incident, not accident, our town was swamped with cops harassing every motorcycle that could have been in the chase.

    In conclusion to the above.
    They never found the motorcycle in question.
