Two motorcyclists allegedly speed down Route 5 and blow through a red light

posted by Billie Owens in crime, news, pembroke.

Two motorcyclists were reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed eastbound on Route 5 in Pembroke and disregarded law enforcement attempts to pull them over. They "blew through the light at (Route) 77," one continued on and the other made a right turn to go southbound on 77. Law enforcement is continuing the pursuit.

Why is this newsworthy?? I see people going through Red Lights every day on Main Street. Even a school bus one time. (And yes I reported it.) Maybe we should get those automatic Cameras and start fining these people. Obviously Law Enforcement can not be bothered. That is until some one is injured or killed.

It's newsworthy because it's their site and they wanted to post it. As for law enforcement "Can not be bothered", that's just not true. There are only so many police on duty at any one time. Sometimes the County Sheriff only has 2 cars on the road.

Fred, if you can show me one cop ignoring a red light runner, I will buy you lunch. I don't believe your accusation for a second.
