    Default Video shows cop speed through light, crash into driver

    A Florida police officer was ticketed after speeding through a red light in pursuit of two armed robbery suspects and crashing into a woman's car.

    He must have been doing the equivalent of a Wallace Terrace run.

    Says the person who's location is just ever so slightly before the grave.
    Let's see who kicks the bucket first.

    You can get in a car accident at any time, just like everyone else.
    It is not because you have a different driving style than mine, that you are immune to driving accidents.

    So, how can you be so sure?

    No it is because I am a Professional Driver who follows the Rules of the Road.
    When you have no knowledge you have no argument.

    He has no time for reading as he is busy portraying his rendition of Parnelli Jones the early years, perhaps he caught one of the movies.

    I do have the notion that anyone can get into a car accident at any time, with possible deadly consequences, regardless of how they drive.
    It is people who do not have that notion who consider themselves immune, because they "drive safe".

    You can kill at 50 and at 150, don't ever forget that.

    I don't know what any of that means, but I am sure it will be interesting.

    Not regardless rather in spite of how they drive. Drive like an angry God after a weasel and your chances of mishap increase, add traffic and the numbers rise exponentially. No problem for you eh Hans? You are willing to endanger innocent lives, it is a risk you feel comfortable with.

    Tell me how you calculate the chance of an accident happening?
    I have been reading about this for many years, but never seen anyone explain the actual calculation.
