    Driving 15 miles per hour in a higher speed zone causes unexpected slow downs, abrupt lane changes and is a traffic hazard. Bravo for this modest fire fighter. He served the public well.

    "He told dispatchers the driver was going about 15 miles an hour, weaving in and out of traffic."
    "'It was really dangerous, so they did the right thing by sticking with it until the deputies got there,' Locke said."


    Hmmmm! Going all of 15 mph, yet "weaving in and out of traffic"??

    Was this in a parking lot?

    Hard to imagine this scenario actually being all that "dangerous".

    But, this loon was clearly not working with a full set of utensils, so I'm glad they stopped her.

    We will never know if he saved a life or not, but in my opinion, he did the right thing.

    This is a very nice thing, especially because he did it from the bottom of his heart as shown from not putting out his name.
