Thanks. I found that to be interesting after a few of the threads on here. Being an officer ainít a job for just anyone. The ones that do it right sure deserve better than they get from most folks though. Thanks to the ones who do it right regardless!

I agree, but there are so many that do it wrong, and unfortunately that's what is made to be the representation.

The young lady i encountered this afternoon was pleasant and professional.

I donít know that approaching from the passenger side is the best method though. Is that something new?

They have doing that for a while here. Much safer for the LEO. They use your vehicle as a barrier in case another car hits something or goes out of control.
They had a trooper here get hit on the driver's side of the pulled over vehicle a few years back , trooper was hit by a truck , killed instantly. The truck stopped , as part of that investigation , they found a perfect imprint of the officers embroidered shoulder patch in the truck's fender. It was so clear you could read the patch in the dent. Trooper got hit that hard.

Often times here a trooper when pulling someone over angles off the pavement and leaves a portion of the squaw car out in the road.

Some officers say they have issues with the vehicle sticking out in the path of oncoming traffic from the rear. Too much chance of a collision and more trouble.

Michigan law says if you come up on a pulled over vehicle by law enforcement, slow down and pull over a lane if possible. "Move over rule"!

Of course if traffic coming is heavy, wait for an opportunity to pass the squaw vehicle when its clear.

More rules to abide by.

Yes , we have a move-over law , however the incident with the trooper's death was before the law was enacted.
Move-over laws are a good thing. Some states have expanded this to other vehicles with flashing lights like a tow truck. There is a lot of tow truck operators that get killed every year loading a vehicle on a busy road when an accident occurs.

The "move over" law is an example of a law that would not be needed if people had any common sense. Why do we need a law to tell people, when they see someone pulled over on the side of the road, to move over into the other lane?
