“Bad Police Work.....”


Description from puppychick labratbecky: ...and Have a Nice Day. :) I am fighting charges that I caused an accident at an intersection (during our race) where a cop was directing traffic even though I followed what I thought were her directions. A friend of mine, who is chief of police in a town in MN, and was there running on a different team, had seen the lady cop at that intersection 30 minutes earlier. He told me to contest the charge because she was not doing her job at all. Anyhoo...nobody got hurt but 2 vehicles were smashed, (mine was totalled), and the 2 people in the other car were advised to ride the ambulance to the hospital to make sure there was nothing wrong with them. I am plenty shook up. It was the worst police work I have ever seen. The story goes on but I'll spare you the details. I'm just happy to be back here. :)

    Oh, Becky! I’m just glad you(and no one else was hurt!). Although it’s a pain, vehicles are replaceable. Definately dispute the charges…
    Cool pick, BTW.

    Oh, Becky! I’m so sorry to hear what you’ve been through & so glad you & the others are OK. What an awful experience — definitely dispute those charges. Maybe your chief-of-police friend would write an affidavit for you.

    Great pick — love Aggie & her new friend aka the Surprised Person! LOL 8) Hugs to you, dear friend!

    I just want to hear that there really was no injury to the other 2 people. They walked to the ambulance but injuries are not always apparent.

    I really really am glad you are okay. Hopefully the other 2 people are also….I take you haven’t heard the final word on that yet. Directing traffic is a precise job…you cant have any ambiguous hand gestures. If this person was not doing her job correctly then fight fight fight. Sorry your vehicle was totalled…that bites.

    Cool hands…was the cop doing ambiguous scarecrow directions???

    Wow! Fun pick, not so fun experience that prompted it! Good luck with your dispute. Sounds like the cop who wasn’t doing her job is using you as a scapegoat.

    Silly me…just really noticed hands were cuffed. Bad.

    You guys are soooo awesome!! I finally got the ticket in the mail. It is only $88. My insurance compnay will forgive the accident on my record becase of the circumstances and my previously excellent record. Now I have to decide whether or not to waste the money driving over there to sit through traffic court until it is my turn (to be vindicated) :) . ARGG. I almost wish the fine were really high to make this more worth it. I just can’t stand the thought of that cop getting away with this. :) ANd, Deb, you have those hands correct on both counts–I thought it very apropos that it could go both ways. :)

    Well that is good news about the price of your ticket. Glad everyone was ok.
