You're kidding right? How often do those excuses work if a civilian is pulled over? The answer is, when the officer feels like letting them off. Law enforcement officers of all people should follow traffic laws.Originally posted by: Rogue
You don't know how long he'd been at work at that point or what his life is like.
When you work in a car for 8+ hours per day, it can get very tiring to drive and when people get fatigued behind the wheel, stuff like this happens. And really, what's a cop supposed to do if he accidentally runs a light like that, turn on his lights, pull over to the side of the road and write his own ass a ticket? Most of you are much too hard on law enforcement officers. For the record, I am one.
From what the original poster wrote, I seriously doubt the officer in question "accidentally" (lol) ran the light.
