What traffic laws do the cops have to follow?
I driving home from work and going the speed limit (ok a mile or two over) and cop goes blowing passed me. I think OK he's got an emergency only to pull up beside him at a red light a few blocks later.
Now it got me thinking if they are not going to a emergency call or what have you why do they not have to follow the rules of the road? Shouldn't they be setting an example for fellow motorists?
Any police officers here on WOOT! that could shed some light?
