Unfortunately everyone is so focused on sharing bad police encounters that majority of people forget the 99% of good work that they do.

That’s very hard to watch.

We now have a law down here that you must slow down to 40kms (25miles) per hour whenever a emergency vehicle, whilst stopped on the side of the road, has the lights flashing.

We don’t ever have road conditions like that either!

There is a phenomena called "light fixation", there have been studies that show that people actually drive towards the flashing lights of emergency vehicles. This is scary shit, I hated being out on the road sometimes, I've been hit by a car when out directing traffic, it's shocking how bad people drive and the fact that they don't slow down around emergency vehicles and in bad weather is damn near criminal. I'm glad everyone i this video survived. Scary shit.

I sincerely appreciate law enforcement. The only thing I don’t like is traffic enforcement in the form of toll breaking, speeding/speed traps etc. I realize this is largely not their choice though. I would prefer more focus on other crimes.

Move to Miami. The police down here donít care if you are driving at night with no lights on. Speed limit on highways are 55-65 MPH and cops pass at 90 MPH when everyone is doing 88. Heck, even in 40 MPH roads people are doing 75.

Youíll love it here!

I hate that happens. Also people "rubber-necking" at accidents. If I see LEO on the side of the road, I get into the farthest lane from them if I can...if not....I slow down and slow everyone behind me down.

I appreciate all you guys do plus I have family that work in it as well.
