Ask a Trooper: Use of Emergency Lights

Email News Alerts

Question:

Recently, I pulled over for a trooper who was coming up fast from behind traffic. The red lights were on and I could hear the siren. After he passed the traffic, I could see way up ahead that he turned his lights and siren off, and within a minute or so he pulled into a gas station pump on the other side of the road. Can troopers or other officers use their red lights and siren just to get to a gas station, or wherever?
