From this morning’s News Tribune: Man arrested after allegedly using blue police-like lights to get through traffic

Washington State Patrol troopers arrested a 25-year-old Tacoma man Thursday evening after he allegedly used flashing blue lights to get through traffic on Interstate 5.

Admittedly, this was a total asshat maneuver, but you gotta give him a couple points for ingenuity. We all know the traffic conditions on I5 are perpetually brutal.

The driver was arrested. He later told troopers the lights and siren were “just for show,” the State Patrol reported.

Yeah right, dude.


  1. Wow, that’s pretty stupid. Nevertheless, I still wish this sort of thing were legal. I so want to express myself to other drivers like that.

  3. Points for use of the term “asshat”. Yup, I always attach these them there lights for fun!
