Why would an officer go though an intersection against the light without using their lights?
I recently saw an officer make a left hand turn from the right hand lane cutting off traffic without using lights or sirens. They were responding to a collision about a mile up the road. I know this because I was headed that direction and saw them parked in the road behind the vehicle involved with lights flashing. I was wondering why they would not turn on the lights before cutting off traffic in the intersection.
The Boss: It is not possible to be undercover in a MARKED patrol car with lights mounted on the roof.
So far, I'm leaning toward 'they forgot'. I was just wondering if I would get a different answer that made sense.
