A motorcycle officer passes you in the left lane while you are in the right lane; his lights are blinking, but there is no siren. He pulls into the intersection you are approaching, and stops traffic (your light was already red, anyway). What do you do?
I signaled my braking and stopped at the red light, and waited for a signal from the officer.
Said signal took the form of him angrily yelling “Get off the road!” at me.
Of course, had I been a car, with a full rear-view mirror, I would have seen the speeding funeral procession coming up from behind; however, since I was the only vehicle (other than the officer) on the road ahead of the procession, I had no indicators like other people pulling over, and I didn’t see anything with the quick look over my shoulder after the cop passed me.
My sense is that I did something incorrect, since the cop was obviously annoyed at my ignorance, but I’m not sure how I was supposed to know they were back there.
Now, had the cop been using his siren, I would have heard it coming from behind me and pulled over anyway. I assume they weren’t using sirens because it would disturb the funeral procession or something. I’m not sure why they were going so fast; maybe they were late. Then again, I don’t really “get” the fancy hearse funeral anyway. Have a nice prayer service and launch my ashes into space.
