This Is Not Allowed - Training Would Help

Are you kidding me? Here in California, when you go through the police academy, a huge part of EVOC (Emergency Vehicle Operations Course) is intersection clearing. If you don't do a good job of it, you can fail EVOC. And if you fail EVOC, like some people did in my class, you fail the academy. (EVOC was my strongest course in the academy. My instructed dropped a "#$%@ yeah!" when I chased the "rabbit car" with speed, control, and safety). And now, our featured presentation from St. Louis. Someone needs to look into better training. And that would be the fire department.
