The pickup truck rocketed through the intersection of Sturdy Road and Penna Hill Drive at 9:30 p.m. The reckless driver was going 25 mph over the posted limit while passing another vehicle at the intersection of the two-lane road.
This firefighter lacked the common sense to sound his horn, despite the fact he was in blatant violation of two laws; passing within 200 feet of an intersection and traveling well above the speed limit. He was driving as if immune from a citation.
Local law enforcement agencies were made aware of this incident to compel them not to overlook volunteer firefighters who endanger the public. This menace was in his private vehicle en route to the station.
The fire chief failed to respond to my complaint in a credible manner, which also reflected poorly on this department.
