How many times has this happened?

There is a marked police vehicle blocking a lane of traffic so that you can hook up a vehicle. Vehicles have one lane to pass, they are not slowing down. Then one of them comes over into the lane you're working as soon as they pass that marked unit and there they are. At this point they are attempting to get back into the lane of traffic. I find that this is happening more and more. The drivers of those vehicles have even attempted to pass the marked unit on the opposite side.


They simply have no regard or respect for flashing lights regardless of color or penalty.

Ron, these are good examples that demonstrate the need for active traffic breaks. That's especially true for the bigger cities where there are lots of assets. If a single incnident of a fatal tow operator or police officer strike ultimately attracts five or more highway patrol units (after-the-fact), it makes sense that additional units could assist to work a traffic break. I know ... that's not reality, but more so wishful thinking.     R.
