RCMP double standard

Double Standard!! Again!!

I was just coming back to work from my lunch break when an RCMP vehicle was approaching the intersection I was in. The officer had his turning signal on to turn in front of me. As he approached I noticed he was talking on his cell phone – isn’t that illegal?? He slowed to turn and then turned off his signal and kept going straight. As I now had to wait for another vehicle I continued to watch and the office did a U-turn on the street and parked on the side of the road. Very dangerous driving isn’t it. I would bet you and I would be facing a hefty ticket?

Talking on your cell phone while driving is dangerous and I am sure his mind wasn’t focused on driving.

Just another case of double standards for the RCMP!! I sure wish I could give him a ticket.

Concerned citizen.
