Bad Cop, No Donut

0600 this am, Wheatland, WY observed a Platte County Sheriff 4 door pickup going East on Hwy 320 (main N-S commercial street). He changed lanes, turned right and then right again at MM78, merged on I-25 North and then exited at MM80. At no time, in any of these maneuvers, did he/she use the vehicle turn signal. Setting a good example?

A few months ago, in the very same locale and approximate time, a Platte County deputy gave me a thorough ass chewing about complete stops behind stop signs and proper use of turn signals. He was, of course, quite correct.

Yes, Sisty, I need to get a life.


  1. "Do as I say, Not as I do." The cop truck was trying to get to the doughnut shop for the fresh one's coming off the line.

  2. Grrr... And if you report it, you've just made yourself a target for 'increased' enforcement...

  3. You are spot on. We are there at 0600 five days a week and 0700 on Saturday. Most definitely don't want to draw attention to ourselves.

  4. WSF...turn signal. Really? Gas that wagon and give her something to chase.


    1. Kind of hard to gas a Prius. You might not believe this but I've actually witnessed vehicles with Wyoming plates and, presumably, Wyoming drivers using turn signals.
