Ive often wondered the same thing. Figure you running 70 and pass a cop he has to turn around floor it to cacth you. Yep hes speeding too.and putting others lives in danger. Calling the kettle black is what I call it

Officers don't have to have their lights on if they are going to a call. What if they are going to a robbery and don't want to alarm them so they can catch them. I agree some cops use their power just because they can but some don't.

Well, it just takes a little common sense if you guys want to use it. Stop and think if you or your family had an Emergency, would you want them there ASAP or arriving whenever? Running those lights/siren is an effort to reach victim(you) with the emergency.

The sad part is many drivers don't acknowledge them & obey give rideaway law.

Cops wouldn't ticket themselves! I bet KU and RECC don't pay electric bills for they're offices either.
