The recent CHiP's thread got me thinking. How many of you guys regularly ride in two man cars? Thoughts on doubling up? Pros/Cons? Discuss please. My dept rides two man cars on the weekend and some nights during the week. It's not really a policy, but in our town (1.5 sq miles, 10,000 residents) we run 5-6 guys a shift on friday and saturday, and we only have 3-4 cars in rotation so by default someone ends up riding double. Personally I like having a partner with me most of the time. Instant backup is nice, and once you get used to one another it's nice to be able to just jump into something without having to communicate first. The problem comes if you get paired up with a turd. Riding alone has it's ups too though. Just wanted to see what you guys think.
