"Authorities said Rood was using her mobile data terminal in her 2011 Ford suburban at the time, and was "inattentive to the roadway." The police suburban rear-ended MacArthurís sedan."

well then I should say the other party who was rear-ended to get a lawyer have the city served with the Notice of Claim then go speak with the chief of police and Mayor . and if still something has not been done in 10 days because that's how long it takes a police to file the MV104 contact Albany state attorney general's office.

What a joke, they were afraid to give a ticket to her because that would lead to fault in the lawsuit! Anyone who rear ends someone is at fault, period. Ticket for following to closely! Fire the Biotch and give them 1 million dollars.

I agree with you 100 percent.. but the city would rather spend that much money in city lawyers and fight it then do what's right.

Did the police give any reason why no ticket was issued? It seems clear that the officer was driving and not paying attention. Watching your monitor, while making a turn, in stop and go traffic, and then rear ending someone seems ticket worthy. I hope the sentinal follows up on this, but I dont think it is likely.

99.9% of the time when a person is involved in an accident with a cop the civilian is almost ALWAYS issued a ticket. We'll see what happens on this. A few years ago a trooper from Ithaca area was known to be texting on her cell and put the cruiser underneath an oncoming tractor-trailer, killing her. SP tried to cover it up but weren't too successful.

if you think the city of Rome has a million dollars, then you are nuts. this mayor has driven this city into the ground. there is no money. nothing. he has done nothing to improve it or bring in business to bring in the tax dollars to improve it. and the RPD is union, they get so many chances after they screw up that she'll never get fired; plus I do believe her husband is the head of the union. go figure.

When you get into an accident you get a ticket but your employer isnt called up and told to take away your vacation days are they? Mine aren't. she will get hers through time taken away. At least thats how most police are.

So, in effect, she was "texting while driving". Anyone else would be in big trouble.

the complexion of the article was hinting towards the victim being the cause of the "accident". The sentinel are in bed with the rome police. Have you ever seen an article that put the rome police in a negative light? They print exactly what the rome police instruct them to!

Except they are made to check their computers while driving, which means they have to do double duty. pick a side people, you want them to be on your beck and call day and night, or drive safely? I know which option I would pick. Pick a side. These people who are trying to help you get screwed in the process.

Oh and D? You know who you are. Shut your wh#re trapm

I don't know if the Sentinel is in bed with the RPD. If they were would they put the cop in a negative light, like she is now? She will be disciplined by the dept.The NYSP will take away a trooper's off days for certain dept. infractions and this RPD officer could have used better judgement...esp. at a busy intersection like that one.
How do you write a ticket

You can't write an emergency vehicle a traffic ticket. They are exempt. Can't write firetrucks, police or ambulances. Thats why they can speed and its not against the law.

You can sue an emergency vehicle (department) however. Remember when Anthony Colon was killed when a firetruck ran a redlight? family sued and won. This was years ago but still very possible. Her punishment will be more severe if she turns out to be a costly liability to the force. They'll end up settling out of court. There's no denying it was her fault.

Supposedly it was his fault at that Y by Staley because he had his music too loud or turned up really loud so he couldn't hear it coming. Just wanted to add the truth to it

hey Moron you are WRONG!
An on-duty South Carolina Highway Patrol officer found himself in an unusual position Tuesday morning Ė on the receiving end of a speeding ticket.

John Beheler, 58, crashed his patrol car after hydroplaning on a rain-soaked Interstate 85, according to the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office. The accident occurred at approximately 8 a.m. He sustained minor injuries in the rollover. No other vehicles were involved in the crash, which occurred in the southbound lanes.

"We are glad that Trooper Beheler was not seriously injured in this accident, and we believe that this shows how important wearing seatbelts are to reducing injuries and saving lives," Lt. Tony Ivey told the Spartanburg Herald Journal.

Ivey noted that Beheler was given a ticket for driving too fast for conditions, though that did not necessarily mean he was speeding per posted limits. A report from investigators is pending.
