  • Motor cops and the HOV lane?

    My wife and I were on the 5 just south of the 91 freeway a couple of nights ago in the carpool lane around 1900 hours and a motor cop came a within couple of feet from our bumper and flashed his high beams on us. He then blazed by us and did the same to the car in front of us and then accelerated by them as well. I don't know exactly how fast we were going but we were moving along with the flow of traffic which I guess was around 75 mph. I was wondering if this is a standard practice to check to see if someone is in the HOV without the required number of occupants or maybe he was he looking for someone specific? At the time it seemed like he was just looking for a violation and it ****ed me off to tell you the truth. Maybe he was looking for something heavy but it could have ended badly. I live in San Diego and our freeways don't really have many HOV lanes so I've never really seen this. Is this SOP in that area for HOV violations?

    Maybe he was running to a hot call and knows that using red lights and sirens make a lot of people do stupid things like stop in the HOV lane, so he just flashed his brights to get people to move, or maybe the call didn't quite meet his agency's criteria for Code 3 but was still urgent.

            I see a large agency's motor units out of their County (they wear blue) on the 22 fwy all the time doing this (heading east, AWAY from the County line). It doesn't bother me...except that it isn't me on the scooter....

              Exactly.

              There is a certain LAPD motor that travels the 405 N from north Orange County to wherever. If I get on at Westminster at 0420 on T/W/TH I will always see him just prior to the 605N interchange (as he hauls *** by). He has pulled over two of our guys (me being one) for doing 75 at 0430 on an empty freeway. After seeing ID/badge he yells that we have no respect for law enforcement while he continues to shine his flashlight in your face. I finally told him to go write my cite or give me my stuff back. He proceeded to throw it in my car. I thought he might have had a bad day...then he did the exact same thing to another one of our guys.

              I've paced him on at least five separate occasions since....90+.
