  • Traffic Duty

    Well thanks to TS FAY, I have been manning an intersection due to no working lights. Even with two patrol cars here all lit up, still people blow through the intersection. (FL must act as 4 way stop during period of no working lights) Two knuckle heads met earlier and slid to stop about 2 ft from another patrol car. Anyway rant over sorry. Minimal damage here, just stupid people (job security). Hope everyone else is ok too.

    You workin overtime or your usual schedule? We were thinking up until Tuesday morning that we may be called in for overtime... but then we realized that it was just another thunderstorm for us.

        We had very minimal damage down here, 1 tree in the entire city knocked over. Never lost power, so no problems with the lights.

        Did have some minor street flooding and a couple of people stalled out, but nothing too bad.

        I can't believe how many people have claimed they did not know it was the law to stop, when the lights are not working at an intersection.

          Hopefully you guys all wore your traffic vests. Did you utilize flares about 50 feet from the intersection. I line them up about 5 per lane leading up to it? That will sometimes slow up traffic or at least give people the inkling that something is going on up there.
          I'd rather cars creep by me at 10 MPH than whiz by at 50. http://forums.officer.com/forums/images/smile.gif
