Probably just some security guard. Similair thing happened to me in the HOV once. I passed a security guard with blue lightbars on his car. He actually lit 'em up like he was enforcing the law or something. I just waved and took off.

I used to pass in the HOV daily. But it was on the Eastex HOV which is pretty wide and there are safe places to pass albeit still not legal.

Emergency lanes are for emergencies. If it was an emergency then carry on. Some weather poses a threat and certainly constitutes an emergency on the part of a motorcycle rider. If the officer has a problem then take the ticket and see them in court.

On the same token, people in cars shouldn't when bikes "get to" take the HOV or fit in smaller spaces in traffic (i.e. - cut them off), or ride in groups.

But cages are VERY LARGE, and if the cage operator also happens to be a bike hater, one quick turn of the wheel leaves us hurt or dead!!

I've seen 'em. If it was an on-duty officer then he should've pulled him over and given him a citation. I don't take police abusing their badges too lightly. If it were me I'd file a complaint.

WTF are you ranting about??
SO you think that just becuse he is off duty he can not make an arrest>
I have made a off duty arrest,,,a police officer is on duty 24/7. just because we are not getting paid at the time does not take away our authority.
And if you read his story...first off...he does not even know if the cop is on or off duty and second...if he was in uniform it doesnt matter...

and if you would have been in the same situation and left and were caught...you my friend would have been going to jail for a felony.

The whole reason why the police officer stopped him in the first place because aparantly the HOV lane that he was in was only a 1 lane HOV. And it is stupid and dangerous to be using it as if it were two lanes.
How easy would it be for another car to not see him and send him into the wall...
i agree that calling him a punk was probably not the right thing to do, but , it got his attention didnt it...

Holy !!
You people!!

This is not abusing your badge...its called doing your job...
once more, for those of you who are a little slow..just because a police officer is off duty does not make him a civilian.

i dont understand how this is a abuse of his badge...the guy was doing something illegal and the police officer made him stop...its not like the officer detained him for a unreasonable amount of time or something...he just simply told him to stop what he was doing...
The guy was breaking the law guys! Plain and simple.

End of Rant...

Funny how you overlooked the discrepancy in the officer's action. You don't see a problem with an officer yelling at and calling a citizen a 'punk' because he wanted to pass a couple of cars? Don't forget, citizens make the laws. Police officers enforce them. It's not a personal attack on the officer when someone breaks the law so there's no need to insult someone when they do so. In response to the comment in bold print above, it's not like the guy passed 10 cars doing a 100mph wheelie. So let's keep it all relative.

Edit: Please mind the "you people" comments. You don't know enough people here to classify any of us into groups.

Dear, Ed. We see that your theory is when someone breaks the law then all protocol is out the window. Rodney King treatment is justified for any action, as long as the person broke a law. Please join our ranks, we believe the same.
