To be clear, the officer used siren to get people to move out of way, so he could park at hydrant


  1. And I pedestrian crossing to boot!

    When I was in my early 20's I had a part time job driving a forklift at a supermarket.
    Every morning I would wave to my dad as he would walk to the train station that was next to the supermarket.
    At this time he was a detective with the police. Now one morning the mall that the supermarket was attached to was broken into so a whole bunch of police cars turned up and one of them parked across the pedestrian crossing.
    A few minutes later my father walked up, got into the police car, got the ticket book out of where ever they keep it and wrote out a parking ticket, waited for the police to finish, and then got a ride into the police station with the offending cop.
    He proudly says that that was the only time he wrote out a ticket.

  2. But he has to keep the cruiser close to where he is in case there's an emergency like say... a fire.
