Please don't miscontrue my words, I am not saying that police should not respond rapidly to emergency situations. All I am saying is that if they are going to speed up and down Rt 17 or any other road for that matter, they need to have their LIGHTS ON!! Please give the rest of us half a chance. No one is saying they don't want a rapid response from police. We just don't want them speeding UNLESS they are going to an emergency situation. I have actually seen one officer speed up, put his lights and sirens on to get through a red light and then a mile or so later, turn light off and slow back down? Do they think that no one is watching? The sheriff needs to be made aware that this is happening all the time.
My prayers are with both families. I know what it is like to lose a spouse and the father of my children. He was killed in a motor vehicle accident at the age of 43.
