Oh, what a day (Part 2)

I was on my way to a doctor's appointment yesterday afternoon. After what seemed like endless arguing with my insurance company, I'm finally getting a hearing aid to compensate for damage in my left ear after my auto accident back in Christmas 2006.

Anyway, I was stopped at a red light on Evergreen when a Dearborn Heights police car approached with its lights and sirens going. No big deal, I thought, at first.

But then some idiot in a white Ford Escort darted out into traffic, right in front of the speeding police car.

The cop had no real choice but to come into my lane in order to avoid a crash. For a split second, I thought for sure he was going to hit me head on. Luckily, however, he managed to swerve again in order to miss my car by a couple of inches.

With all of this in mind, I would just like to say to the unknown driver of that white Ford Escort, I you see something that looks like this:

...you're supposed to stop moving until the police pass you. Ditto for fire trucks and ambulances. If you can't do that, stop driving.

To the police officer behind the wheel, thank God your reflexes are as fast as they are. Otherwise, both of us might be in the hospital.
