Roadside dangers

Roadside dangers

If I am ever inconsiderate and foolish enough to park on the shoulder of a busy highway at night without any lights on, I would expect a police officer to stop and issue me a citation for my lack of common sense.

But what happens when it is the police committing the nonsensical actions? It seems in recent months this dangerous and thoughtless procedure is commonplace with officers in the Pine River Police Department.

Who do we call when it is law enforcement causing the roadside dangers? Instead of serving and protecting, you’re presenting additional roadside dangers.

I have exceptional eyesight and can usually spot you parked precariously (save for when I happen to be meeting oncoming traffic at the same point). What happens when someone elderly or with poor vision comes along and clips you? The taxpayers will be stuck paying for your bad decisions.

Turn your lights on, park somewhere else — or both — before someone gets hurt!
