Police should follow traffic laws too
Every week in the Foothills I see at least one car running a red light and/or stop sign, even now that the snowbirds have fled to the north.
Last week on Foothills Boulevard, I was following a police vehicle, a pickup truck marked “Traffic Investigator” when the light turned red before it reached the intersection. The police vehicle blew right through the red light. What was his hurry? Was he afraid that the store would run out of donuts before he got there?
This was not an ambulance or fire truck or other emergency vehicle! At least he should have turned on his lights and siren if there was cause to ignore the traffic laws!
