But sometimes they don't have their siren on, not that they should be excused or anything, but it's irritating that they speed and also talk on their cell phones as well and don't slow down on ice either.......

While I believe those in law enforcement should be held accountable when in the wrong, I take issue with this situation. It may have been dark and difficult to see but the article said she had her lights and sirens on. It is ridiculous to expect officers to do their job while having to deal with things like this. The other driver should have stopped. Do you think he believed he had the right of way? I don't. I think he just didn't care or wasn't paying attention. Bad judgement, either way.

"Roe was cited for driving through a red light"

What? The police are being held accountable? You don't say!

When I went to court, the judge threw it out. The police have an obligation to operate in a safe way for the public, that's in the state statute, as well.

The Highway Patrol is required to investigate any accident involving Minot PD because they, by law, cannot investigate themselves. I was ticketed after being hit by MPD in Oct.

That officer didn't need to get a ticket. The other person should have been got a ticket NDCC 39-10-26(Vehicle to stop or yield the right of way for a authorized emergency vehicle).***** I tell you people around Minot need to remember this see red and blue lights and hear a siren move over the love one in need my be yours *****. Maybe the reason that highway patrol trooper gave her a ticket is because he was called away from his Hardees coffee break I see them there all the time no wonder our area has the most highway traffic death in the state. I rarely see them on the highways. There either at Hardees or at there office. The Minot Police Dept. and Ward Co. Sheriffs Dept. does more in a day then these NDHP troopers do in a year.
