              I could see it going either way depending on a whole host of things to include lighting, traffic, location, and etc.

              (I am assuming that "fellow LEO" means a "LEO period" and further presume that such is off duty or far outside his bailywick as in .... plumb out of his home state and jurisdiction. I do not see it happening with the current crop that work with / near me as they are a really squared away bunch and not apt to put me in such a position, nor I them.)

                Most of the time I think it is plenty safe to go 13mph over the limit, so I would not be pulling over very many people for 13mph. In a residential neighborhood with narrow streets or in a school zone would be a different story.

                If I did decide to pull them over for that speed it would be because I thought they were driving too dangerously and I would give them a ticket regardless of their occupation.

                  I don't tag Joe Citizen for 13 over, so why would I tag a LEO?

                    Open hwy or wide open street I usually don't cite anybody until 15 over. 10 in a residential or narrow/blind areas. But taking all things in to consideration I give far more breaks than cites anyway. As long as they don't have a terrible driver's history or bad attitude civies get a break. I take into consideration an officer's EVOC training as one of the reasons I give my fellow LEO's a break. If they have a bad attitude I'd rather deal with that through his agencies W.C.

                      Where is the option for "Doesn't appear to think infraction is serious and is likely to violate again."?
                      -I don't feel you honor someone by creating a physical gesture (the salute). You honor them by holding them in memory and, in law enforcement, proceeding in vigilant, ethical police work. You honor this country or deceased soldiers or whatever you're honoring when you salute a flag by thinking, feeling, and continuing a life of freedom.

                        I write a ticket based on my feelings, given the circumstances, of whether the act of doing so will help or hurt a situation. If it hurts the situation such as taking food off the table of a family, etc. then I won't. Additionally, I write them, such as in cases of not having insurance, not as a punishment but as a documentation that this person has no insurance and is a financial danger to others on the roadway. If the violation is tossed out in court I don't really care. I did my part.

                        Would I ticket a cop? Sure, why not. Maybe not one I work with simply for the fact that some people are trivial and may not offer assistance (back up) for the fact, but I wouldn't feel any worse about it. I equate this to the cop that runs stop signs, redlights, etc. simply because he/she is the police and no one can do anything about it. If you're responding in an emergency or even urgent fashion then I don't have a problem. However, I find it ironic that many cops will ticket someone for offenses that they themselves do often regularly.

                          LOL

                          I should add that I wouldn't write anyone on Earth a citation for traveling 13 mph over the posted speed limit.

                            I wouldn't even pull a person over for 13 mph over....
