Police lights and sirens are to be used for emergencies, not to facilitate left turns or run red lights for convenience. I can't even count the number of times I've seen police officers abuse this privelage. I wonder if this sort of behaviour is why the term 'pig' has become synonamous with police officer. How can we have any faith in the integrity of our police force when (some) police officers so flagrantly abuse even harmless privelages?
To those officers who are above this behaviour: sorry if this complaint sounds like a generalization. You're responsibility is appreciated.
