Pfftt!! So what if it was a waste of time, resources, money, etc... I was too busy to stop! Besides, thats your job, man!

Guys, I see what you're all saying. The thing is that every time I go to someone's house or where ever their emergency is, it's the "worst day of their lives". I'm not belittling anything, it's the truth, and human nature.

The thing is that things happen for a reason, and we're not always going to get that "last word" or "last chance" with our loved ones. Your presence or lack thereof is not going to change anything for anyone. Many times, your extra people's presence is actually a problem for those trying to help.

Cherish the time you had with your loved ones and celebrate their lives. Time spent dwelling on "woulda coulda shoulda" is wasted time.

There is no good reason to put yourself or others in danger to try to get that last moment that you may or may not get. Often times, if they're already in the hospital, you're not going to see them anyway, especially if it's a serious illness or injury.

Your loved ones will know that you loved them, and they'll know you cared. Be thankful for what you've got.

hahaha tom said booboo tummy. I have no idea why that's so funny to me, but it is. I know where you're coming from, I'd get somewhere and an old lady would say "I'm a little gassy, can you tell me why" and there's 2 empty bags of prunes on the table.
My fav was the people who were just plain crazy. "the snuffaluf***us called, and the stapler broke our cereal" Me; "just tote the rhombus wad under spangler, he'll stop calling".
"ok, thanks".

I see the legal and logical reasons behind calling 911 but I can also see how some people can justify taking the person there themselves with speeding.
just an example with costs from fm 529 hwy 6 to huffmesiter and 290

$1,200.00

that would be like taking a cab 60 times just plain ridiculous

You know a few weeks ago I called my Mom in Louisiana at about 7:30PM, who is dying of cancer. She sounded really bad and couldn't get a hold of anyone to come and sit with her. I could not leave her that way! So I left Houston at 8PM and at about 10:45, 220 miles away. Going down a back country road in LA I got stopped for doing 90 MPH. I told the Cop my story and he ran my license and told me to go and be careful. It is completely the Cops discretion whether they write a ticket or not. Some guys, like Todd seem to be able to use some logic to make a decision and some don't.

I have to take just a little bit of an issue with this premise. First off you did say it right by saying be careful, and going fast surely isn't the safest way to drive. But going fast does not cause accidents. Going fast under wrong conditions and making stupid decisions while going fast causes accidents. If my Mom was really sick and I new she needed medical attention in the middle of the night and me getting her was the quickest way to do it, I'd do the same thing. I've been driving for 36 years, I've always driven at least 20,000 miles per year and I've never gotten in a wreck while going fast. Every accident has been from some idiot doing something stupid in a parking lot, or at an intersection. Some people just should never even get behind a wheel and of course they should never go fast either.

If you are doing 60mph and need to travel 30 miles, it will take you 30 minutes (1 mile per minute). If you are doing 90mph and need to travel 30 miles, it will take you 20 minutes (1.5 miles per minute). Depending on the type of emergency, 10 minutes could mean life or death...
right, beltway and 45 to katy is about 30 miles, so I saved about 10 minutes

But the Buell doesn't even look fast... and believe me it's not! 90 was about as fast as I wanted to go, but I got called out for 100. Something is not adding up here!

Will do, my uncle is ex-HPD, so I'm going to ask about the buddy buddy lawyers, too. That seems to be how the courts work downtown.

I was careful, traffic was very light, didn't pass on the right, slowed down when i approached a car, sped up on the straight aways were I didn't see any vehicles. I just got unlucky that Sgt. Gomer was behind me at some point.


The funniest thing was the congregation of tow trucks that were sitting the parking lot.

As some have mentioned above.... and after some thought the rest of the day... I remembered a story my sheriff neighbor just told me a few days ago, he had just got the call that morning:

This passed weekend one of his sheriff buddies got a call that his wife had been in an accident and was unconscious in the hospital... so he left work, went picked up his baby from the sitters and on the way to the hospital, slammed into the back of a cement truck... he died. The baby is in critical condition.... the wife was still unconscious at the hospital, unaware that her husband died and her baby was now in the ER, as well.

Tom made a great point earlier... and so did "trdvet" just now... it's just hard to think when you're stressed... get someone else to drive you to the emergency room, if you can... if not, then just be careful, is all I'm saying.

You know you are right! There is no doubt that driving fast is more dangerous. What we don't know is if this guy turned to look in the back seat at the baby because it lost it's pacifier or what. It's pretty hard to believe a COP was looking forward paying attention to traffic and just ran into the back of a truck.
Lesson: Don't go too fast, but if you do don't do anything else but drive the car and don't take unnecessary chances. There isn't anyone out there that has never gone too fast including the COPs on and off duty. The trick is to be smart about it and don't do it needlessly. That's where people screw up.
