Update on Yucatan State Police Car Protocols

“Tonteria…” “Todo es una tonteria…”

Ever notice that the police often drive around with their lights flashing?

Should you stop or pull over?

Up to this morning, I thought the answer was: “No, keep driving, but use caution/care.”

Once again, just about the time we think we understand how things work, it turns out that sometimes, never imagined subtleties crop up. I was driving to drop off a car for some suspension/tire work, so, I had my clunker bike (Exotic Bicycles from the 1890’s to 2011) sticking partly out of the trunk, to ride home. Some cruising State Police (SSP) noticed this from a block away on a side street, and then slowly tracked me down – lights flashing “as usual” – in a Yucatecan-rewind off the OJ Chase.

After following me for a block with their lights flashing, they started speaking over their sound system, asking me to pull over. I pulled into the suspension shop, and they blocked the entrance to the garage. They were not happy campers.
