I want you to focus your energies on the reckless behaviour of many police officers. I realize that not all of them behave this way but it is a significant number of them. Many of them don't seem to respect the traffic laws. Where do they get this attitude from?
Have you heard the following slogans in the last few weeks? "Breathe - Tailigating won't help. Give yourself time and space to react. Keep your distance." and "Chill. So you're running behind. Better to arrive late than not at all. Please slow down."
Depending on which side of the fence you are on, this pronouncement from Inspector Norm Gaumont who is the head of Traffic Services for the RCMP in British Columbia has certainly caused comment. Of all the sections in the Motor Vehicle Act, those that set the speed limit are certainly held in the most contempt by the drivers I see during my patrols.
