    Why is it that lately I see more and more police vehicles, during the day, speeding down the middle of the main road with just lights and no siren? Last time I checked the siren was to notify motorist that an emergency vehicle was coming and to get out to the way. I have encountered so many fast oncoming police vehicles that do not slow down, heading directly towards me without warning. It so dangerous and frightening to have just enough time to get out of the way of one of these vehicles moving so quickly and what seems as carelessly. I’m not saying that they have to slow down but knowing that they are coming would at least help. I hope this is not the reason this accident happened. It would be sad. Thank goodness no one was hurt.

    Oh yeah I have seen it so many times,flashing lights don’t work during the day especially if you are driving in the same lane, when driving one is supposed to keep your eyes looking forward inna??

      The reason sometimes there is no siren is they are responding to a breaking and entering

      • to be honest i believe he was on the doughnut and coffee run??see if he could get back to the station while it was still hot!!

    You don’t have to see no flashing lights, just pull your azz over to the side when you hear them coming though burping…

    Let’s be real. The experts for a B&E come one hour later in their “undercover” car. Time to spend the new budget money.
