  1. Was the police really on call .in flatbush one police car had his seirn on went on the sidewalk bike lanes then sped off after he almost hit a few bikers but didn’t

  2. Even if it were really on a call, most times it isn’t necessary for them to cut traffic. (If there was a small bumper to bumper accident, a burglary that isn’t in the midst of occurring, & even most local traffic stops.) There’s no reason for them to be skipping red lights or zooming. It’s not like they are saving lives where every second counts. (In the rare occurrence that they are needed urgently – they should, but why put others at risk to catch a guy 3 seconds sooner?

    I can guarantee this accident will be blamed on the van.
