That is the law that was applied to the Austin cop's accident. FYI, I wear a hat made out of aluminum foil to prevent the government from reading my thoughts

LOL, read the quote again.

1. It says nothing about emergency vehicles
2. A cop on duty is acting in an official capacity

Technically many people get arrested every day due to traffic; like it's been explained multiple times on the forum, the only traffic violation you can't be arrested for is speeding.

the lights on the bike were still on after the accident, which would lead me to believe that he was in fact on duty.....

First off, until recently I haven't spent much time on this forum. Second you can be arrested for speeding, cause it nearly happened to me a couple of days ago. And if you refuse to sign you can go to jail for going 1 mph over. And if you can be arrested for running a stop sign and/or an accident, then anyone who does it should face the same charges no matter who they are.

no, you were probably going to be arrested for another charge other than speeding. if you don't sign the citation then you're not agreeing to show up to court, so if you're not going to agree then they will instanter you on it. it's an officer's discretion to arrest you or anyone on those charges...


bevo- sorry i didn't read the posts right, misunderstood....sorry about that.

Since I was there, I probably know what the cop said to me. I was doing 9ty and he told me that if he would have said that on the radio he would have had to take me to jail. There was no other charge. No evasion and I had ins. Etc... Are you telling me he lied to my face?

Then you wouldn't have been arrested for speeding, you would have been hooked for reckless driving. two completely different charges, but that good sir would put you in harris county or which ever county you were in .

if an X amount of speed is automatically considered reckless driving, and you can be arrested for reckless driving, any reasonable person could come to the conclusion that you could be arrested for speeding, regardless of whether it is technically on the books or not

well it's not an X amount of speed over the limit. it all comes down to the officer's discretion. did he feel you were a danger to yourself or others? if you were to have gotten arrested that day, your arrest report would have the charge reckless driving on it, not speeding 9x/xx.

it was my understanding that anything over 25 over was automatically considered reckless driving, can you provide a reference that states otherwise? I would like tosee it.

wow , hope the officer does recover fully.
Can't believe some posters think it is fair game for leo officers to go down.
It is sad when anyone goes down ,civilian or leo.

For the record, I most certainly do not think it is fair game for a leo to go down and hope I did not come across that way. I just think it is up that the cop in Austin was not penalized at all for what he did. Anyone else would have gotten a ticket to say the least. I know more than one police officer (personally), that practically get away with murder (pun intended) on a regular basis, and the fact that they are cops shouldn't allow them to get away with so much. Because they enforce the law (sometimes), they should be held to a higher standard. An example of when this concept is actually used is when Marines or former Marines (yours truly) get caught doing something, what is usually said is that they should have known better. Police officers, who enforce laws which protect the safety of others, should definitely know better than to do things that infringe on others safety, even if those things are technically legal. I don't know of a single person with half a brain that doesn't know that the law can be and is often imperfect.
