    To all CFN readers take heed .

    I wrote a blurb the other day on OPP warning .It did not appear to have made it on .

    There is a relatively new traffic violation on the books .

    When seeing a stooped cruiser with flashing lights ,stop ,slow down or go on the other side ,whatever the need may be @ the time .

    The fine for not doing so by my experience is $400.00 + court cost $90.00

    The old hat of pulling over for an emergency vehicle still exits .

    I can only presume to many were being struck .officers that is .

    I went to court to try and defend myself to no avail .

    My purpose was two fold, one to try and defend the charge and secondly to let police know that if they do not have a flashlight or a
    vest on or a hat with a badge they are not that visible when stepping amongst the flashing red and blue lights .

    In my case there was a car travelling in the opposite direction too .

    Fortunately for him and I, he was not struck .He was not visible to me or my wife till we were almost past him . Why he would have walked onto the roadway to get back in his car was beyond us. Surely he didn’t see us amonst the flashing lights either .

    I hope that the number of Cornwall Police and OPP that were in the court house that morning, have taken heed .

    If any officers read this, reinact it for yourselves ,this occured in my case @ 1048 pm.In the dark ,with dark cloathing and that;s it .You do not show up clearly among the flashing lights ,yes my headlights were on and the back seat driver guess who ??was my passenger and when she doesn’t say anything well what more can I say .

    Mr Gordon
    There was a lot of publicity about this law designed to save Police officers…BUT…about a month ago OPP were using a Lazar to catch speeders just outside of Casselman
    There are lots of speeders but OPP tactics are really dangerous in my humble opinion….the lazar officer was in the centre median turn road of 417…but the officers stopping traffic were out of their cruisers on the side of the highway…to flag down those caught. There has to be a better way…two yrs ago I saw a brave/foolish officer almost get killed as he stepped out onto the highway in heavy traffic…to signal one of many cars going past.
    I was shocked and upset that an officer could loose his life to catch a speeder…There is already a “Memorial Bridge” to Officer Dent just outside of Ottawa.
    I was happy to see some officers going to the passenger window of cars stopped on dangerous highway 138..a really smart move.
    I just hope it doesn’t put them more at risk…what to do…get hit by a car with a distracted or target fixated driver…or go to passenger window.
    It wasn’t that long ago that police near Morrisburg had a shootout with some criminals they stopped that open fire during a “routine” traffic stop. The criminal paid with his life that day

    FACTS
    Provincial Constable Harold H. Dent Bridge
    Ontario Provincial Police, Badge #44
    March 2, 1903 – June 20, 1940

    Constable Harold (Hal) Dent was responding to a telephone call about a suspicious person at the train station in Navan. When he approached the suspect and asked him to identify himself, the man pulled a gun from his coat and shot Constable Dent in the abdomen. He died within an hour, still on the floor of the station. His killer, a transient wanted for a break and enter the night before, was shot and killed by an off-duty OPP officer a short distance from the station.

    Constable Dent was 37, and survived by his wife Wilma and infant son Murray.

    Hi in court I told them they wear bullett proof vest why if your
    stopping cars @ night would you not wear a flurescent vest .

    There was plenty of room to get his car off the road .

    He was partialy on the road there was plenty of room to get by till he walk out onto the road .

    The unfuny part about this is after my ticket I left he passed me with lights still flashing on a double line.got infront of me shut off his lights carried on up to a stop sign didn’t stop or signal .Turned right , and proceeded to stopped another car for no apparent reason .

    I’m behind him a short distance he does it again this time he didn’t get out of the car till I pased by .I was only a block from home .I’m thinking oh no he isn’t going to ding me again .I honestly was afraid to go by him .

    Now I didn’t hit him,It could have been close .

    If I would have hit him and SIU>would have been out to investigate
    my belief would be that he may have been repremanded for not wearing a vest no light ,not being off the road ,the person he had off as passed it was not what I would call an emergency .A ticket .

    They should be forced to watch Police most dangerous videos .

    I see OPP are now wearing flurescent vest and walking to the passenger side to speak to drivers ,they also get off on the shoulder .

    Good for them the job is hard enough without putting themselves in immediate dange .

    Drivers are @ the mercy of the police, really on this one ,just saying .

    He then stopped on the side of the road again

    Mr Gordon
    so glad u didn’t think i was saying anything bad to you..
    You didn’t know the rule about moving over…there seem to be plenty or drivers who don’t know…or don’t care…and don’t move over for police vehicles..
    After a truck driver stumbled out of his cab and was almost hit by a family member who was on the road non stop for work…I started moving over for every stopped vehicle.
    Your also right about police wearing bright vests…after driving for hours into the sun near North Bay…I almost hit an officer directing traffic in the middle of the busy two lane highway…Couldn’t see him in dark uniform
    I told him this…but he didn’t have time…or care about my thoughts…
    Also know these officers face death every time they approach a car..but comparing notes…with an older family member….every time u have contact with police today…they always seem to have a chip on the shoulder…guess its from dealing with all the criminals..but at a ride program stop…I tried to tell an OPP officer that i was sorry a few officer had been killed that day…he acted like i had challenged him to a fight or something…tough job…that i wouldn’t wish on my best..or worst friend.
    Without boring u to tears…I saw an old courage in red tv show about RCMP task force at Cornwall…the young smugglers were telling camera crew to double ff off..berating the cops…and…drove off after being stopped.
    The RCMP guy said they were not allowed to chase…guess this message never made it to that “decorated” officer who was chasing a car that smashed into an elderly couple…killing them…On Indian Tribal Lands.
