Firefighter of not...the kind of driving that took place at my risk and the rislk of others is absolutely wrong. If it was a regular citizen doing in front of a cop dash camera like what is on MY citizen dash camera...we would get a handful of tickets. At least!
This happened about 4:05 pm last friday at hiway 205 north bound just on the 14(to 205)on ramp. The White Jeep careened in one fast and dangerously close to me and others, move from the on ramp to the inside lane. No signal...no regard for anybody.
The OSP receptionist asked me several times "You have video????" Yes... I do. Moments after the Jeep flew across all the lanes and drove quickly weaving to get further on...the traffic got bunched up. And as so often happens, for nothing, because I ended up right back behind him. I saw and spoke his plate onto the running video camera. NO mistake in the plate. I noticed a 'firefighter' decal on the back window. I used to print firefighter logos often(tees)I know what they look like. It did not say 'supporter' that I could read. So that is a question. But really...why would OSP be blowing me off PERIOD; regarding my complaint. Do we have the right to complain? WILL it be responded to????? WHEN?????????????????? Not even a phone call so far(it's tuesday).
I put the video in my car just to help protect myself in case of a full on accident. Because guys like this driver cause accidents! In the case of an accident it would not then, just be 'my word against anothers'. I almost slammed on my brakes (on the freeway!)due to this moron. Then what? As it is, I have video. AND NO SIGN THAT OREGON STATE POLICE CARES ABOUT IT AT ALL. On more than one level, I expect to find out why.
If this week passes and I get no response(or otherwise if I see fit)I will upload it to youtube and you can go see it for yourself.
There silence is not mine.
