This cop ought to get an entry in Dickipedia.
All they need to do is get a local talk radio station involved. I'd bet it'd be dismissed.
What a prick.
That's Rt2 po-pos for ya. They are BRUTAL. (I grew up near this very stretch of road)
Funny story - same thing happened to my mom back in the day - heading to the ER - cop meets us in the ER to give her a ticket for speeding.
Judge tossed it without blinking an eye.
That also was on Rt2 FTW!
No preferential treatment.
What a moron, so, if he gets shot in duty, and decides he cant wait for a ambulance, and has to drive in this very lane, does have to stop and give himself a ticket? Or would that be too much of a mindf**k for him and would his head asplode...
I watched a cop turn his lights on at a red so he could go through the light into a Tim Hortons (coffee/donut place in Canada)
Definitely deserves a page in Dickipedia.
That happens alot around where i live.
Oddly enough that happens quite a bit here too. Hilariously, the last time I saw a police officer do that he pulled into a local doughnut shop.
Tim Horton's is no ordinary doughnut shop!
I think we can excuse them for that.
I did notice that the worse offenders around here are the Sherrif's deputies. They typically speed for no apparent reason, don't fully stop, etc.
Here is another version. If she was going to the nearest hospital, I would say the cop was a prick. But if you are going into labour, still going to a hospital 30 miles away and refuse to use an ambulance, I don't have any sympathy for her. You can't do whatever you want just because you are going into labour, get to the nearest hospital if it's an emergency.
Next time, you should place him under citizen's arrest
That reminds me of this incident a few months back at the clinic I used to work at. These people came in with a kid who had broken his arm in two, the bone sticking out and everything. First they drove the kid over 60 miles from their home to the clinic, which is located right next to a hospital with an emergency room. The nurses bandaged up the arm, but couldn't put it in a cast or anything so they had to take the kid to another facility. Instead of taking him to the hospital across the street, they drove him 65 miles back in the same direction from which they came to another hospital.
Ah, the freedom of choice in the American healthcare system.
Boy that trooper is a heartless s.o.b.
Obviously, you've never been around a woman in labor. There is no convincing or explaining that will get her to agree to something she doesn't want to do.
That doesn't excuse their stupidity.
He made them wait while he wrote someone else a ticket too? Must be trying to fill a quota.
Say that to a woman in labour, you will be eaten alive...
Sounds like your mom shoulda driven the extra couple of miles.
Thank God he didn't hit her in the stomach with a baseball bat!!!

heartless? im all for the safety of other users of the road. only official emergency vehicles are exempt from laws in my book
You need a new book. Discretion is the better part of rigour.
No reason to put other people's lives in danger by driving like an idiot, when a simple phone call brings medical aid to you.
Can't seem to see when it said the ticket was written and the woman finally gave birth.
The officer definitely isn't a ******** if the woman was in labor at the hospital for an addition 5-12 hours, before final delivery of a screaming brat.
Who said anyone was driving like an idiot?
