Scott's Law Anyone?

  • Two separate vehicles struck a Chicago Police officer and firefighter who were directing traffic at the scene of gas leak Saturday afternoon in the Far Southwest Side Mount Greenwood neighborhood.

    Both men are in good condition and the crashes were not hit-and-runs, according to Fire Media Affairs spokesman [...]

    A small gas leak occurred about 1:30 p.m. in the 10400 block of South Pulaski Road, causing Level I Hazardous materials response. On the scene of it, the firefighter and officer were trying to direct traffic when separate vehicles struck them....

Both are expected to recover, but no word on tickets for the drivers doing the damage. A couple of thousand dollar fines and would be nice publicity to remind idiots how to pay attention.

Oh, it's not that they aren't paying attention. It's just that they're paying attention to the wrong things - the pretty flashing lights, the movement near the ambulance... they forget to pay attention to WHAT'S IN FRONT OF THEM.

Got caught in a huge traffic jam inbound on the Kennedy today. Why? Gawkers. The damned accident was on the OUTBOUND side. There was no earthly reason for traffic inbound to be affected, except for the people paying attention to all the WRONG things.

Dude, it's Mt Greenwood. 19th ward. The guy/gal who hit them is probably the son/daughter of a cop or fireman. Or maybe a cop or fireman the did the hitting. That's all there is down there.

Hit a construction worker on the highway and you are looking at doing some jail time.

Why allow unlicensed folks to buy or own cars? You should'nt be able to buy a car without a DL. Too many believe its a right to drive in this country.

Hey 304 am seriously you troll. Why would a fireman help us out because we are all in this together. And I bet even with no training anyone can do better than those brainless dopes called tmas

Why aren't the Supervisors being held accountable ? I can see at least 10 drivers in 10 minutes driving around Mt. Greenwood, with a cellphone in their ear, every day, without even trying. Most of them are inattentive Broads.

Why isn't the District Commander accountable for assuring an adequate number of Citations are issued each period ? Are their patrol persons, Sgt's etc. riding around with blinders on? Stevie Wonder could see negligent drivers in Mt. Greenwood all day / night long on any day or night. Why do they constantly pass the buck and not be held accountable?
Perhaps we need some new adult Supervision out here in Hillbilly Heaven. [022]

NO, it's because they aren't paying attention to what they are doing, driving a Motor Vehicle, Asshat.

7.29 You don't even need to show insurance to get plates let alone a DL.....part of the new Obama policy of handing our country over to those who shouldn't be here.

#1 Because making a designated amount of tickets to write is called a quota, which is something we do not do.
#2 When we write tickets the judges usually let them go in traffic court.
#3 We are too busy in a backlog handling jobs that you hillbilly inbreds don't have the common sense to figure out for yourselves.
#4 Most of all we have been shit on by the citizens, the brass and city hall we really don't give a fuck anymore!!!

Traffic on all these South Side N-S arterial roads is insane. People drive on Western, and especially Kedzie and Pulaski, like they were still on the Expressway.

And, boy, the comments thread here is interesting. Does anyone know anything about who the drivers were? Or are we just assuming based on geography? And nice idea that Mt. Greenwood cops/ff'ers "taking care of their own" would include helping someone get away with this particular crime. . .

You must have worked in the ultra-slow 022nd District your whole career.

Try developing some integrity and not worrying about what Judges will do. Write the tickets, and try your best to protect those you are sworn to protect, Lazy-Boy...

I guess keeping the rest of us Taxpaying Citizens safe doesn't count , as usual, out in Mt. Greenwood. Wait till some dipshit kills one of your family members while driving around not paying attention and jabbering away on a cellphone, ASS-FUCK....
