    I do this myself sometimes for a couple of reasons

    1. Because I'm trying to tell you without stopping you to slow the hell down
    2. I'm assessing you, your vehicle and the number of occupants and anthing else strange.
    3. I'm on the radio

      I'm with you completely. Garbage in, garbage out. Thank you for your understanding. I almost wrote the department both times. I just hope it doesn't happen again, because I don't know what I will do.

        When I rode motors, I frequently pulled alongside a vehicle a waved the driver to the shoulder while holding back traffic. Did not use emergency lights for those stops, just the rear flashers as a warning to approaching traffic. In fact, been known for doing the same in a patrol car.
        The roof lights were visible but not operating.
