    Good situational awareness on the part of the Officers.

    How in the world do these drivers hit parked police cars?

    Do the the lights attract them like a bug zapper or what? :shocked:

    One small comment on the actions of the cop who saved that woman's life. cops do stuff like that every day. The only stuff you hear about, though, is the bad stuff.

    Pretty much sums it up. I can't believe some of the stupidity I see on the road every day.

    When I took my test at 16 all the examiner did was have me drive out of the lot, go up the street about 500 feet, and then turn around and go back to the BMV. I thought I'd done something to fail, and was relieved when he told me to come in and get my license. Kind of frightening now when I see all of the teens texting, putting on makeup, and making out while driving.:wow:

    Yup. Stupid and drunk people get target fixation on the pretty lights. Where the eyes stare, the hands steer.

    DWI is pretty common. Texting while driving may as well be a DWI. I loved one of the local reports on a single car wreck. Some girl was texting while driving, rolled her vehicle, and there was a picture of her on the grass texting about how she texted while driving and rolled her vehicle.

    Watch the video again, the cop car that was hit, was stopped in the far left lane of travel with NO emergency lights activated. As it spins around you can see no rear flashers, nothing but tail lights. The van was driving way to fast no doubt, but parking your patrol car in the hammer lane with no blue lights activated is stupid as well !

    The blue lights are to drunks as a porch light is to moths.

    I watched it several times and it appears you're correct about no rear flashers; not even 4-ways. Since we don't know what the speed limit is, I don't know if the van was going too fast or not. I suspect not, though, since it's a 6 lane roadway; those usually have speeds in the 45-50 mph range, in my experience. Still, the van driver may be liable for not being alert to the hazard.

    Ditto good situational awareness on the part of the officers.

    I could only imagine how many times this happens a year. I am sure L.E. put others safety ahead of their own many more times than people think.

    A few years ago, an L.E. was hit by an out of control car while trying to help the stranded motorist.

    I drive this route every other weekend. I didn’t see it happen but I did see all the Emergency Vehicles on the ramp when I was passing in the opposite direction.

    Police officers do this everyday. We should keep trying to take away their pay and benefits, maybe one day we can privatize them and pay them as little as possible.
