Never heard of Scotts Law... But there it is: http://www.isp.state.il.us/media/pressdetails...

Your situation sounds like it does not really apply to me. Emergency? Pull to the right? Yield? I think it's a stretch to call a traffic ticket stop an emergency because the lights are flashing. But who knows... Traffic Cops are funny people.

Coming from a family full of first responders I appreciate Scott's Law and the police officers who enforce the law BEFORE a tragedy happens rather than after.

If you see flashing lights up ahead, you are required to slow down and move into the furthest lane to give the first responders a wide and safe berth. It doesn't matter if it is fire department, police department or the street department. They all deserve safe conditions in which to do their job. The number of people who just fly on by and do not move over is astounding.

If you got a ticket for this, you deserved it. Perhaps if you read the story behind Scott's Law ( http://blogs.chicagotribune.com/news_columnis... ) you will better understand the lives you put in jeopardy when you ignore the law and blame others for your mistake.

Well Said! You must yield to emergency vehicles regardless if they are moving or not. Since people cannot figure this out, this is why roads get shut down a lot more often for accidents. Even with Scott's law people still don't realize they need to yield to stopped vehicles and emergency workers who are out of them.

I see both sides, you should move over but you shouldn't set up phony stops to see if people will slow down and move over, if its even true? Does anyone have and substantial evidence that its true?

To non smoker, of course they have no evidence.
to Appalled. spot on
to ekim, stop worrying about your next text and trying to beat someone to the next red light. If you are following the law you dont have to worry about the scam. Seems like a good idea to me. Get the word out that this is happening and maybe idiots will see those lights, and pay attention. If people are talking and start paying attention, then the scam is working.
By the way did you ever think that maybe the po po were finishing up with another traffic stop and someone sped by and it wasnt entrapment.

Man, that stove was hot! Not touching it again.

As for "Someone", I suppose when stopped for a ticket, you smile and give a happy thank you? Yea, I bet.

Still, until this post, I never heard of pulling over because of someone else's traffic ticket stop. I bet lots of people have not. So it would be a burner to fall prey given that.

As for the shoot, ready, aim comments. Yes, I "always" pull off or over for a Fire Truck or Ambulance. I thought this act was common sense & a courtsey.

Ok spin meisters, back to you.

Very good Neighbor. I do smile, I am polite I try to respect the badge not the person. Saying thank you, no not really. However if I am pulled over I probably deserved it. I was pulled over once in NL over the last 20 years. Paid my 25 fine and haven't worried much about it. Maybe next time I'll scream entrapment.

Scott's Law, 625 ILCS 5/11-907(c), mandates that upon approaching a stationary authorized emergency vehicle, when the authorized emergency vehicle is giving a signal by displaying alternately flashing red, red and white, blue, or red and blue lights or amber or yellow warning lights, a person who drives an approaching vehicle shall:
proceed with due caution, yield the right-of-way by making a lane change into a lane not adjacent to that of the authorized
emergency vehicle, if possible with due regard to safety and traffic conditions, if on a highway having at least 4 lanes with not less than 2 lanes proceeding in the same direction as the approaching vehicle.
proceed with due caution, reduce the speed of the vehicle, maintain a safe speed for road conditions, if changing lanes would be impossible or unsafe.

If the cops are out posing for this. Their time would be better served trying to bust heroin dealers, child molestors, and burglars. But then again no money is to be made of that stuff. So they will pretend to have an regency and use their opinion to see if you use caution.

You may judge this as an unimportant law and not worthy of enforcement, but there are those out there whose lives depend on it. The time law enforcement spends on this is highly appreciated by those who are trying to safely do their job (serve and protect you) and go home in one piece at the end of the day.

What you fail to recognize is that during an emergency situation, first responders are focused on the emergency event which takes priority over the enforcement of this law. They can only try to watch out of the corner of their eye as people speed on by. Most first responders would probably tell you that they are more likely to get wiped out by a citizen in a car than by a bullet or fire.

Enforcement is the best educator and deterrent.

Like I stated if they are pretending to have an emergency. There time can be better spent on real issues. Use Scotts's during real emergencies not pretend ones just to make money.

I am furious and confused by this. If the cops have a choice of busting dope dealers and pedophiles or entraping safe responsible drivers, they go after the drivers? This is an outrage.

I'm outraged at how far up your butt your head is. How many traffic violators are there compared to other types of criminals. A lot more people driving commit infractions then the other crimes. You would be the type that cry when a guy didn't get pulled over for cutting you off.
