People on the road are retarded,I have seen people not having a clue on what to do when a police cruiser tries to pass them on the left. They are so stupid they just sit there like they can't see the lights or hear the sirens.

If there were two in the cruiser, then two would be injured or dead. What they, & everyone needs is common sense. Old saying, "Haste Makes Waste"

These officers drive like fools around here when they are on a call. I understand they must get there but safety of others on the road should b a priority as well. Last week I was coming off the Elm Grove Exit 5 ramp by Hardees & I heard & saw the police so I pulled as much to the right as I could (there was 1 car in front of me and more behind)the next thing I know is the cop is making his way on the right trying to squeeze by me & everyone else. The person in front of me had to pull out in traffic & I had to do the same then pull over for the cop to get by. All I know is he had plenty of room to go to the left side and get through. When I got my drivers license I was taught to pull to the right when emergency vehicles need to get by. This cop didn't know what he was doing & having 2 in the car would not have made a difference. Had this cop caused an accident Wheeling would b blaming the driver not the cop w/o common sense. He really could have cause an accide

If there were two officers to that cruiser, this wouldn't have happened. The other officer would have yelled. "LOOK OUT" and the accident would have been avoided.
