“Accidents happen, I know she wasn’t going out that day and saying, ‘Let me see if I can hit a FedEx truck,’” Weaver said. “Honestly, I’ve run stop signs before; it’s not a popular thing to say, ‘Yeah, I’ve done stupid things before.’”
Stopping at stop signs is now optional.

If she wasn't responding to a call (and why would the Memphis police chief be responding to a call in Armada, which is only patrolled by MSP) then she should suspended- or fired.

I was told that Michigan law stated the at fault driver had to be ticketed? I guess I was told wrong?

FYI, Firefighters and Public Service employees performing their work duties are also exempt from many traffic laws in Michigan. IE snow plowing requires a lot of rolling through stop signs in deep snow in order to make it around the corner with a load of snow in the underblade.

Did you read the story? It wasn't because she was headed to a call. She flat out Arab a stop sign. That is nothing like a plow driver rolling one at low speed because it's needed to complete a task.

Someone posted that police get exemptions from tickets. That made it sound like the police are getting something special so other chimed in to say that other public servants are exempt from citations during their duty time.

Last winter in Bay City a snow plow driver flew threw a red light and t-boned a car (injuring the driver of the car). There was some controversy about the plow truck driver being exempt from stopping at the light but in the end he was cited for the accident.

Until I moved to Auburn, I was a paid on call firefighter with Bangor Twp. We were drilled that we must be sure the intersection is clear before going through it. Some people think that a fire truck (cop car, amberlamps, etc.) is allowed to blast through stop signs and red lights at full speed. Not true.

In my clearly written comment I mentioned nothing about the original story nor about police. Please read Nuggets' comment to your post, he has reading comprehension skills and understood perfectly.
