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.
