We have all seen extremely dangerous and careless driving errors regularly committed by our local police officials, including danger-prone idiot officers racing down downtown Portland sidewalks at 30 MPH.
According to KATU Newz, a recent example of this police recklessness has resulted in serious injury to a pedestrian in Beaverton. The officer responsible was racing to either assist a fellow officer, or to take advantage of a doughnut sale, details are still murky.
"Wandell said the officer was not using his emergency lights or siren at the time of the accident."
These officers need to learn/obey the rules of the road, and/or get out of their cars.
Beavterton is so poorly planned to accommodate pedestrians and cyclists, and traffic laws, such as speeding, are so poorly enforced, Beaverton officials should be held personally responsible for many of the pedestrian and cyclist involved incidents that occur there.
