Marco, they are OBSCURE laws. Old laws that are not heavily reinforced. They may sound dumb but there is a reason. Every law on this site is in deed a law. Just because you live in CT does not make you an expert on the laws. Just because someone is a police officer does not mean he knows every single law. There are thousands and thousands of laws, and most police departments only know the laws that are heavily reinforced for THEIR town. Many of these laws are not State laws but Town laws.
Oh, the fire truck will be here in half an hour? No, there’s no problem. Yeah I’ll just sit here and burn to a crisp.
NOT TRUE! I live in Alabama
NOT EVEN A LAW!!!
None of these are laws…. this is number three… I am going down the line for the Connecticut laws… read back if you wanna see what else I’ve said- and I am only saying this because I live in CT and to be sure I have researched each on Google.
Tomorrow I will print the list out and ask my neighbor (chief of police). See what he says. I will be back tomorrow to eat my words if I am wrong! 🙂 Promise!
Still a stupid law for that one life more could die because the firetruck was unable to get to the fire in time.
Back in the early eighties, a small child was struck by a firetruck in town while responding to a call, and subsequently killed. The resolution was passed almost immediately, considering the stopping distance of a fully loaded engine w/ 500gal water tank, at speeds greater than 25 mph, i think it’s a smart move. The engines still make their suggested response times for their entire first-due & 2nd due respone areas, so why let them go faster? Because the NBFD cannot guarentee the actions of the public in regards to their actions around a responding fire apparatus, why not build in a safety margin?
