How about the jerk on the other side who didn't pull over then overtook the F250 driver who did pull over.

u/harley9779 Nov 27 '22

The F250 was the only non idiot in this video. It also refutes OPs claim of not seeing, hearing and reacting to the emergency vehicle. If the F250 was able to, then everyone else was also.

177

u/Fuzzy-Heart Nov 27 '22

It doesn’t refute anything with regard to visibility (you may have grounds on sound but even there it’s dicey if the speed limit was 65+ where wind noise easily plays a factor). OP (if this is their video) is coming up a hill and going around a blind bend. The F250 may have had a direct line of sight with the officer, allowing them to react with time.

The person who overtook the stopped F250 on the other hand, I have no excuses for.

28

u/harley9779 Nov 27 '22

The curve existed for all of them. I can see in the video the cop coming around the corner. OP made zero attempt to pull to the right at all.

The sound I agree with. OP claims no siren, but it's entirely possible that it was on but OP didn't hear it.

55

u/Fuzzy-Heart Nov 27 '22

I see the cop enter the frame at the 8 second mark. If these cars are traveling quickly (which at least the cop obviously is) the time to close the gap between them could have been extremely short. I think you’re jumping to conclusions way too quickly.

As to the curve, yes it exist for both but we don’t see much of what’s beyond the video ending. Again, the F250 could have easily had way more visibility.

With regard to law, this video wouldn’t be conclusive and leaves out too many details. To jump to the conclusion that OP had enough time to stop though is an assumption.

24

u/Mike2220 Nov 27 '22

I don't know if it was enough time to pull over and stop

But it was definitely enough time to start any form of reaction whatsoever, which they didnt

That's just your car lining up with the line differently because you're driving on a curve there instead of a straight

Because its position changes when youre getting to the turn, not when you see the cop, and then goes back, not after the cop goes by, but when you straighten out to prepare for the upcoming left

Nice try though

Hey OP, I would vouch for you that the corner is blind and the police truck may have silenced their siren so you had very little time (~3 seconds) to react. Police present some risk to the public when engaging in a chase which is what it seems like was happening.

However, from your replies you come across like a confrontational dickhead. It may help you on the road as well as in other situations if you cooled your attitude a little. Just a friendly suggestion from me.

Are you a gambling addict or something?

You made the post and multiple people have commented that essentially the lack of sound makes it look like you were the idiot and not the police officer.

Police are allowed to cross double yellow lines in emergencies with their lights and sirens flashing. You removed the sound but the lights were clearly flashing, leaving everyone to assume the siren was active as well.

If you want to leave the video as is that’s fine, but as is you look like one of the idiots in the video.

Hey OP, I'm sorry you're being dragged through the mud here. You definitely were not the idiot and you did nothing wrong whatsoever.

Solid double yellow line means no overtaking under any circumstances, yes? Of course emergency vehicles can override that rule, but they must still drive with the safety of other road users as their top priority.

The police officer would have done well to be patient and wait for clearer visibility.

We drive with the 2 second rule because that's the average time it takes to see an event and respond to it on the road. The cop was visible 3 seconds before you passed. OP was not being as attentive as they should have been.

11

u/Minute-Ad-2148 Nov 27 '22

Watching the video in slow motion and pausing it, it is not obvious that the cop is in his lane until the 33rd second, before that it just looks like the cop is turning in the proper lane. The cop flys past him right when the 34th second begins. Again this is from looking at the clock on the dashcam. At most OP had 1.5 seconds to respond and at worst he had less than one second.

Bruh, the three second rule is about following distance. Following distance in the same direction, not going over the speed limit in the opposite direction.

https://www.autoaccident.com/what-s-the-3-second-rule.html

It's far safer to go with three and expand on that in poor conditions. Also older/heavy cars have longer braking distance, so keep that in mind.

u/tbrand009 Nov 27 '22

2 or 3, either way the time is based on your ability to react. I'm not saying OP needed to come to a complete halt before the cop passed him, I'm saying OP should have had any reaction to the oncoming vehicle.

The right handed curve means you (in the left seat) should have seen the oncoming vehicle before the camera.

You are the idiot here, not the officer. You failed to obey the law, failed to pay due attention to your surroundings and are attempting to place blame on someone else for your failures.

Pretty sure the law states you can't pass on a curved road. Don't think having lights on makes it an exception. Because it doesn't make you that much more visible, especially in broad daylight. Officer made a dangerous pass by not having sirens on and only the lights giving OP very little time to respond to the scenario that he put him in.

I like how you post a state statute without considering that there are 49 other states plus territories and other countries this could be in.

Please throw your license away, thank you.

I posted states statute because OP specifically said that's the state they were in.

It wasn't reckless driving. That's what emergency lights and sirens are for. To get to an emergency and for idiots to get out of the way.

Try reading some traffic laws.

u/Soundophocles Nov 27 '22

From the same statute you posted yet you and the officer in above video conveniently ignore:

(b) This Section shall not operate to relieve the driver of an authorized emergency vehicle from the duty to drive with due regard for the safety of all persons using the highway.

3

u/harley9779 Nov 27 '22

No one has ignored that. Running code 3 authorizes the officer to disregard all traffic laws. But still requires them to drive accordingly to prevent accidents.

In this case the officer was paying attention. First he saw the idiots in his lane that failed to yield (except for the F250 that did yield). He passed them on the oncoming lane. Then when he encountered the idiot OP, he changed into the other lane when OP failed to yield.

As no accidents occurred, the officer was obviously exercising due regard for the safety of all persons.

I was teaching someone to drive once and the police came behind us with lights on and siren so I said pull over to the side of the road.

Genuine question to the people in this thread:

OP posted the clip with audio, revealing there was no siren activated. Cop clearly crossed the double yellow around a bend on a hill, making it difficult for OP to react quickly. So my question is, what exactly did OP do wrong or could have differently? It seems people are still displeased even after OP posts the clip with audio after the bombards of accusations and false assumptions.

u/Mike2220 Nov 27 '22

So my question is, what exactly did OP do wrong or could have differently?

They could've reacted at all. I get they probably wouldn't have time to pull over and stop, but they didn't even turn to the side at all to even try to get over when the cop was in view.

Like cop lights are fucking bright they would've seen that easily (dash cam has lower saturation else bright lights would wash out the rest of the image)

I have perfectly normal vision, and apparently you don’t

Stop driving bucko before you’re in the way of an ambulance

What the fuck are all these people on about? It was clearly a blind corner and OP couldn’t see the police truck until the last second.

Even if the siren was on, there wouldn’t have been enough time to react.

Jesus Christ people.

Numb nuts, flashing lights means pull over on both sides of the road! Learn how to drive!

Flashing lights numb nuts! Look up! Idiot! Big flashing lights! You hear the siren! Do you even drive! Let me guess a remote control car doesn’t count!

My guy you are the idiot here. Along with like everyone else in the video. There is absolutely no chance you didn't hear the sirens as it was coming toward you. REGARDLESS of what way the vehicle is going, if you are on an undivided road, pull over.

I'm sorry but if a police vehicle is traveling like that and there is traffic visible, there will be sirens. If they don't, that department needs more funding

Why you so angry man? I'm actually sitting in my living room.

And in fairness, the dash cam shows what happened fairly accurately I'd imagine.

Maybe you're just a nervous driver?

If they'd've hit you you'd've been arrested for resisting arrest and strangled.

I tried to complain about a situation like this. Only, an unmarked car with dashboard lights swearing around a car on 2 lane highway. No siren on. just silences and a blur of a car going fast and eradicate. It got completely ignored. "not our car"
