I've seen this a few times in the past week ... and once again on the way home from work today ... and it pisses me off.

Emergency vehicle trying to get through busy summer traffic and the people in front of it just stop in the middle of the road, completely blocking the emergency vehicle. Then they just sit there looking behind them as the emergency vehicle (a firetruck today) is honking at them.

These idiots are deliberately impeding an emergency vehicle further endangering lives that are already in peril.

Pull over to the side of the road if you can. If you can't, keep going until you can. The worst thing you can do is block the emergency vehicle's way.

This guy is on a roll, appearing in both hall of shame and shitty drivers thread. I wonder if he realizes he's getting all the unwanted attention and that's why he's trying to sell his car now.

I personally believe that all emergency vehicles should be equipped with (proper) push/bull bars and if a vehicle refuses to move out of its way, they are then legally allowed to push it out of their way. Even up here in Kamloops I've seen idiot drives do exactly that. That said, all those instances seem to be around TRU, which does have a large international student body... :hrm:

i always say, what if the emergency vehicle was trying to reach a loved one or a friend or someone you know? you wouldn't other people blocking the vehicles way now, do you?

so why do it to others?

and what the heck do these drivers learn to get their licenses?

On a brighter note, I also encountered many courteous drivers on highway 3 to Hope that immediately moved to the right as soon as they saw a vehicle approaching them in the rear view. It was like driving in Germany, I got a soft fuzzy good feeling inside

I don't understand how you can accuse someone of being a left lane hogger and a speeder at the same time.

So he's going 110 to 125km/h, which is the same speed everyone in front of him is going, which is already over the speed limit and he's complaining that a vehicle is hogging the left lane "blocking" flow of traffic??

By that logic, we should all be travelling faster than the next person regardless of what speed they're going. If all 3 vehicles in front of him in each lane were driving 200km/h, does that mean the guy in the far left lane needs to move out of the way so he can go 220km/h?

How fast does he think he needs to go?

Doesn't matter how fast you are going, if there is people behind you wanting to go faster, that is their personal decision. You are supposed to move out of their way, so as not to impede them.

I am not saying the officer needs to go faster, I am saying the traffic in the right lanes is going the same speed, and he was block traffic behind him. The correct thing to do was for the officer to move into one of the clear right lanes so others could go past him.

EDIT: Guys it ain't difficult to understand, left lane hogging has nothing to do with speed limits. The two items are mutually exclusive, regardless of how fast you are going relative to the speed limit, if some asshat behind you wants to go faster you should get the fuck out of his way if it is possible for you to do so.

Otherwise it equates to people doing stupid shit like that RAV4 to get around the impedence. Was what that RAV4 did intelligent? No, of course not, but when you get frustrated sitting behind someone you do not believe is going fast enough, then it leads to some people doing stupid shit.

i find this to be in such a grey area.

like the video stated, theres a portion of the clip that is says its a 90km/h zone. so if the person in the left lane is already going 120km/h, they are already breaking the law and is considered speeding. they are over the limit quite a bit, but not enough for it to be considered "excessive".

so if that person in the left lane changed to the middle lane, continues at 120km/h, that means everyone on the left lane is supposed to be going over 120km/h because people in the left lane are supposed to be faster than the people in the slower lanes. this is especially when you are passing on the left.

lets kick it up a notch. lets add another driver in the right lane thats already speeding and going at 120km/h. middle lane goes faster, left lane even goes faster. so in order for a person that is behind the driver in the left lane to pass, it gets pretty dangerous. so how fast do you have to be to draw the line as to when you can be in the left lane? because we all know, no one is in the left lane just to "pass".

is it solely based on traffic flow and speed limits don't even matter anymore?

the way i see it, the officer that is already speeding is keeping everyone behind him so they don't all go faster than him (which then is excessive speeding). if the officer moved over to the right and people just pass him and keep going, the officer is ALLOWING them to speed.

if the people behind him chooses not to speed, and kept at pace, then the officer isn't really hogging the lane. as illegal as it is to pass on the right, they could have also done so. which is no better than speeding anyways.

LOL okay, but then that's not really speeding. Too slow for the flow of traffic is still going too slow. Can't accuse someone of speeding if that's the case.

I'm more impressed that the guy just straight up passed the cop.

If I can get a ticket for it, then that's speeding. Pretty bullshit that an officer not actively responding to an emergency is going almost 40km/h over the speed limit, when on any given day there are officers out there ticketing people on that same stretch for going less than 20km/h over the limit.

There is not set speed at which you can just sit in the left lane. The rule has nothing to do with speeds, the rule is that if you are not passing you should not be in the left lane. At 2:00 mark, the officer has both right lanes open to him, and nobody up ahead. He is obviously not going to be passing anyone for a great deal of time, at that point he should have moved into one of the right lanes.

yea, but i can also argue that if I move over and let the asshat pass, he picks up speed and rips it down the road, ends up doing stupid shit anyway, loses control of his vehicle and some people die because of him.

maybe if he just didnt drive like an asshat, no stupid shit needs to happen?

That isn't how the law sees it. The law is very clear, if you are not passing you need to get the fuck out of the left lane.

It may be slightly different given this is a PO, but for any regular civilian vehicle you are not on the road to enforce the laws on other drivers, that is a job for the police. So you should abide by the laws yourself and get out of the fast lane if you are impeding traffic flow.

Now given the vehicle in the video is a PO, you might be able to say "well he was trying to keep everyone driving at a reasonable speed". Well then that's great, and I commend the police for finally taking a different direction rather than just blindly ticketing everyone who goes over the frankly ridiculous speed limits.

But then my argument switches from giving the Police officer grief to slamming the government regarding our stupid speed limits.

So pick one? Is it the speed limit bullshit? or is this cop a fucking idiot for going 40km/h over the limit?

the police can never win.

if he goes speed limit - "he's going too slow" (by your standards)
if he goes above speed limit - "he's speeding!"
if he tries to manage traffic speed - "he's hogging the left lane!"
if he tickets the RAV4 - "why didnt he ticket anyone else speeding??"
if he doesn't ticket the RAV4 - "why didnt he ticket the guy speeding excessively??"

edit: you should post the video in the police forum, i am very curious what they have to say about this and what the officer should have done

I would never complain about an officer if he was going the speed limit.

PO's don't set speed limits, the government does, I would be complaining about the government at that point and their retarded speed limits, as I have previously countless times on here.

Remember I never fault PO's for doing their job, everyone knows the speed limit, regardless of my opinion on it, you cannot complain about getting a ticket when you knowingly broke the law.

I do however actively lobby the government to revise speed limits so they adequately reflect the speeds appropriate for the roads in BC.

----

I can however complain about an officer going 40km/h over the speed limit when I see officers handing out tickets to other drivers doing far less then that

----

Feel free to post a copy there, if I am honest, the thread is just going to get filled with arguments with spidey and zulu regarding their defense of the actions of this PO. Police can never do any wrong from what I have seen them say.

I respect their opinions greatly, and I am happy they are on the boards to help in legal matters, but they are PO's (or were atleast), and much like I would defend any brother of mine, they defend the actions of every police officer. Even when the actions cannot be defended.

he still can't win because, if traffic starts to back up, someone else will just say "he should have managed traffic speed", which brings us back to "he's hogging the left lane!"

------------------------------------------

Someone correct me on this if I am wrong... CVSE's primary role is with commercial vehicles (inspection, safety standards). While they have the authority to give out speeding tickets to non commercial vehicles, it is not what they do. Same with Transit police, they have the power to do it, but it is not their primary role.

Having said that, I still do not encourage anyone to speed by one
