I used to be a city officer

I used to be a city officer in Concord, NC. We always tried to set a good example and that included obeying the speed limit unless under emergency conditions with blue lights. I know sometimes an officer needs to get somewhere in a hurry but not necessarily an emergency. I agree 100%. However, I worked in Wilmington for almost 10 years and traveled US 17 daily. Dozens of times I would be rolling about 60 and a Sheriff's deputy or a State Trooper would pass me going probably 75. Sometimes it would be a Wilmington, Carolina Beach, or some other department on business, with no jurisdiction in Brunswick County. I know that all these times they were not on calls. Many times they would turn off and head for the Sheriff's dept. in Bolivia, so, obviously they were just in a hurry. I just think that they should realize that other drivers notice their behavior and the officers lose respect when they break laws that others get a citation for.
