    Failure to yield to an emergancy vehicle? Turning across a double yellow line? Illegal lane usage?

    Some states yes, some no. Yes in Oregon where this apparently happened. I had to look it up.

    He was supposed to pull to the right.

    Looks like he was cutting the corner short. If you go to .22 it looks like he was going to turn right into oncoming traffic. We was going to be on the wrong side of the road after he made his turn.

    He turned in front of a passing car. I'm not sure about that one, Just an Idea.

    Ok, I watched it again. I didn't see a turn signal.

    The question is do you think the driver ever new the cop was there an if so did he know in time?


    Also about this section of the law which is very close to Ga law I am use to.
    Quote:Was the cop driving with due regard for the safety of all persons using the highway. Also does his right of way also protect him from fault?

    He may have been but he looks wide enough to me

    He does have his blinker on but its hard to see in the video. I would not expect to me passed on the left on a double yellow an my left blinker on.

    Ok, I watched it again. I didn't see a turn signal.
