Road Trip, and a question
I was curious if any LEO's (or other people) have an opinion on something that happened today. Before I get to that, quick background. I was on a road trip from Seattle to eastern Washington, Eastern Oregon, Northern Nevada, Northern California, then back up 101.
I drove through a town called Beiber (I guess I was just in Beiber?), but that's totally unrelated to my question. I just had to use that joke.
Anyways, I was driving through a town called Port Angeles, which is a pretty large town (not really a city), and usually it takes about 15-20 minutes to drive through it.
As I entered the town, and ambulance came up behind me and I pulled over. After it passed, I got in behind it. It was doing 30-50 mph, depending on whether people ahead of it were pulling over. When I got behind it, there wasn't much traffic, and I wasn't following very close (50-150 yards, depending on its speed).
Basically, I was able to pace the Ambulance in the left lane, and people were pulling over to the right...and I was lucky enough to not have anyone pull into the gap between me and the ambulance.
Was able to get through town in about 5 minutes as all the lights were with the ambulance, and all the traffic kept pulling over (as it should).
It's not like I was tailgating the Ambulance, nor was I speeding to keep up...
I don't think I broke any laws by doing this, but you never know...saved me a ton of time though!

I fire up the willing engine, responding with a roar. Tires spitting gravel I commit my weekly crime.
