Turns out if you right-hook a police officer, you get cited for making an improper turn.
Buick nearly collides with UAPD bicycle officer
UAPD officers were on routine bicycle patrol in the area of University Boulevard and Park Avenue on Oct. 13 at 10:45 a.m. when a white Buick nearly collided with an officer while making a right turn. Police initiated a traffic stop at Fourth Street and Park Avenue and made contact with the driver. The driver identified himself using an Arizona driver’s license. A records check revealed a suspended driver’s license. Police cited the man on charges of driving on a suspended license, making an improper right turn, and failure to provide proof of mandatory insurance. His vehicle was towed for a mandatory 30-day impound and he was released on scene.
I wish they had also cited all the people who have put my clients in the hospital by doing the same thing.
Next time they don’t, I think I’ll bring this up. Why is it illegal to right-hook a police officer but not a civilian? Is that in the statute somewhere?
