I recently received a traffic citation. I deserved it. No argument. I was on an ATV on a public roadway. The officers were polite and almost by the book.
I waited for more than half an hour in 90-plus-degree heat. I dont know what the officers did in their air-conditioned car for that long, but it was hot. They wouldnt let me take the machine back home. That was OK.
What is not OK is that I am not a young man and even if I was, I would not take a stroll down the highway in that kind of heat. Who they are or what agency they work for is not the issue. The issue is they had no concern for how I was going to survive the walk or the heat. Their actions were totally unacceptable.
