CASE LAW - R v Wlodarczak
Do the police ever charge a fellow officer with a traffic offence? I suspect that members of the public more often than not would respond "no" to that assertion and would be skeptical of protests to the contrary. In R v Wlodarczak, we see that this happens, even when the accused is driving an unmarked police vehicle at the time of the offence. In this provincial court case from 2001 at Merritt, B.C. we see the claim of exemption from the application of traffic law while operating an emergency vehicle did not apply in the circumstances and the officer was convicted of speeding.
