Don’t whine

Should you not take heed, take your medicine and don’t whine about it.

Re: comments from Mr. L.J. McMillan on police tickets. As a former emergency responder, I have stood on the roadside and had vehicles pass at high rates of speed.

I have unfortunately had to attend a scene where a policeman was killed by a driver who was more interested in their need to get home. Was that life worth the time saved?

The need to pull over safely is absolutely correct and the emergency lighting gives alert drivers plenty of time to move over and slow down.  If unable to move over, the simple act of slowing down shows your concern for the safety of all concerned.
