Are you seriously giving me driving advice? I drive for a living, remember? I also fill out the UD-10 reports for them. Please, you sit in your house and you write on your computer and you enjoy the luxuries of being judgemental, but know that when you call, WE will always be there to save your sorry **** eS so you can continue to sit in judgement of others.
Real cops recognise fetal pigs(minimum wage security guards aka cop wannabes) when they see them.

Sounds like someone is on their own high horse about how awesome they are at their job. Also, sounds like someone may be a little burned out from their job and needs a vacation. You are quite an angry person. The point is, a woman almost lost her life, she's safe, Thank God and nobody else that SHE WAS LUCKY!!!

You think you are such an expert simply because you have a license to drive. As usual, you are speaking based on opinion. You have your head up you hiney. Again, I am a trained professional, what training and experience do you have to back up your theory? Let me guess, because You drive, you know everything. Leave this poor lady alone and go back to mowing your lawns.
Good grief how many times do we have to read you are a "trained professional". Big Deal. Driving experience, using you head under conditions, etc. is key to!!! Get off the "trained professional" crap!

Zuker is the one who said dear little "Baby Jane" shouldn't think she's so perfect and sit in judgment of others... and he gets accused of judging!?!?!? Why, for defending the imperfect among us? Accidents happen. Doesn't make people stupid. It just makes them human.

Oh, and Baby Jane, your time will come. I hope people ridicule you as you've done to others.

I agree with you here, and think that his badge in this area came from nowhere other than a K-Mart Blue Light Special, but, on the flip side of the coin, there were alot of washed out roads over the weekend and the woman may have indeed been the first one to find this one out on accident

Accidents happen, it doesn't mean she was doing anything wrong. I think the most important thing here is that she was rescued from certain death!

What is up with this guy? He is actually scary..lol. Look, I have a clean record at 39. Mom when she was alive & I would set & listen to the scanner on the 1st good snow day & I would just shake my head! People have to learn that snow/ice covered roads or water on roads are not the same as dry ones. All it takes is common sense & for people to start slowing down. In winter, leave like 10 mins early for work. Is that to much to ask? I guess I cherish my life & others than the average driver out there.

Again, I am a Officer trained in investigating these situations, I am curious. Where does your training and experience come from that makes you feel you are an expert on the situation?
Almost 50 years of driving is where my training and experience come from. I do not claim to be perfect, but I have not had a chargeable accident since the early 70s. The accidents I have had since them have been someone turning in front of me (twice) and hitting several deer. I have experienced hydroplaning and it is a scary situation.

if you read the story, this happened at 10 PM !
It is dark out at 10 PM.
I know I would not have been able to see water over the road at 10 PM at any speed.
This is not about bad driving it is just a bad situation that happend to a good person.
At 10 pm you see only what your headlights can show you. it could have happened to any one.
If you can't see it, you are over driving your headlights. If visiblity is poor, you should slow down to a speed where you are able to stop in the distance that you can see.

First of all, as an Officer of MANY, MANY years, who handles such accidents, as well as one who worked for the ambulance services for many years, I also responded to these calls. I have seen MANY who have come upon water in the roadway or pooling, and NO it doesn't mean they are lousy drivers. Have you ever had an accident? By your standards, does that make YOU a lousy driver or does it not apply to you!
Interesting, you call yourself an officer, yet the terminology in MI has been changed from accidents to crashes.

I live extremly close to where this happened. Inless you drive down Michigan Ave in this area on a regular basis when it is raining, you most likely would not know the water is bad enough to hydroplane. I have been driving on this section of road for 20 years and it will occassionally catch me off guard. It is dark and hard to tell the difference from wet pavement and hydroplane areas.
