If not, and we see that they are speeding, doing U Turns, pulling out in front of people, etc, are we to assume they are breaking the law?

They are allowed to do as they please. You could stop him and voice your protest.

Maybe they are going to a call. Not all calls that they get require lights and sirens.
Really?

You do realize those things in the middle of Hwy. 64 are called turn arounds. Not called a u turn when they use them.
