• Yeah, I would write her the ticket for lying. She sped and then she told you a b.s. story. When I got stopped the one time in my life for doing something that could be considered illegal, I gave my reason for doing what I did but did not lie about it.
  • If you're certain that she lied, I'd say she deserved the citation. A medical license doesn't give you license to speed. Besides which, her speeding could have caused a real emergency for herself and others. That actually makes me a little uneasy about that courtesy in general.
  • Right. And in future she would get one from me just for lying this time.
  • Being a doctor or nurse doesn't give you license to break the law. There was no emergency to justify speeding. She sped, she got a ticket. End of story.
  • If she lied dthen she deserves two one for the violation and the second for trying to lie her way out.
  • It's a good excuse, but in this case, wrong. Write her up and send her along. I hope that wasn't a school zone.
  • She can only speed to an emergency if she's in an ambulance & since she's not a paramedic, you were right to give her a citation, especially because she lied.
  • He should have issued a citation if she was doing 89 mph unless she was driving an emergency vehicle.
  • 34 over, & lying 'to boot'! == 'nail her!! Hopefully, she MUST appear in Court. I trust (& hope) the Judge'll 'put it to her hard', with a severe & stern lecture as well. 'Creatures' like this tend to ruin it for 'the legitimate exceptions' for whom you 'cut some slack' as an understandable courtesy.
  • Thanks everyone for your answers. its difficult sometimes to know if a doctor or nurse is lieing. in this case, i made the phone call. why? she just did not seem to be that interested in a ghost patient at the ER. glad i made the call.
  • I hate being lied to, so yeah scratch out a citation.
  • i didn't know that being a doctor or a nurse gave them the right to make the roads more dangerous for others? speed limits are there for everyone's safety...alot of good it is to cause another crisis, more injuries, while on the way to address a crisis. i don't think making the roads more dangerous is a "courtesy", at all. i say issue the citation every time!
  • All the doctors and nurses in the whole belive that they are empowered to brake any law prevailing.They normally contest there case by arguing the points eventhough there may no justification in there case.Finally when police or trasnport officer stand strong they will convert like small cat and finally they will remit the fine.When fine remitted thay will be looking as ordinary man.So this is the diffrence between a dcotor driver and ordinary driver.Just like i right?
  • 89 in a 55 shoot, book em Danno.
  • Citation and DOUBLE the fine!!!! They are no more above the law then you and I. +5
  • Your primary duty is to enforce laws, not interpret specific cases; so you should not feel obliged to give [any] individual special treatment. The posted speed limit was 55mph and she was traveling at a rate of 89mph. It is your duty to give this person a ticket. It should then be for the court to interpret how the law relates to her case specifically and how/if she should be penalized. Hence the phrase "Tell it to the Judge".
  • Absolutely right, if what you say is correct. A doctor is supposed to save life, not put it at risk.
