  1. Uhm, so the cop assumed he had the right away, and didn’t notice the traffic signal was malfunctioning? That tells me he was caught up in the moment……and the person he hit actually had the right away…….had he been paying attention……this wouldn’t have happened…..I’ve driven emergency vehicles in emergency situations, you don’t assume ANYTHING when coming to an intersection, because THIS is what happens when you do!
