Are Speeding RCMP exempt from traffic laws?
I’m just wondering if someone can tell me what the rules are for RCMP and speeding?
Today on Hwy 16, a ghost car passed me with no lights or sirens and he must have been going 140 at least as I was going 120 and he just flew past me. When I saw him a short time later, he was just sitting in the median waiting for speeders. Now, sure, maybe he was on his way to a call, but with crappy road conditions and no lights to alert other drivers of his presence isn’t that extremely dangerous?
What protocol is in place for civilian protection? I can see if there’s a call where they need to not bring attention to themselves by turning on the sirens, but shouldn’t they have their lights on?
Can someone enlighten me as I’m just curious why time and time again I see this on the highway and honestly, it’s mind boggling as to why they feel they can speed so fast and yet hand out tickets to others speeding, but at lower speeds then them.
