Dear editor,

Re: Surprise! Emergency-vehicle law ambushes Prairie truckers (Truck News, May 2001, page 34).

My husband and I were pulled over for the same thing, and we were given a warning at the time.

The officer was sitting at a stop sign on a side road, waiting for traffic to clear before entering onto the highway.

I suggest Rhonda Raddatz, manager of driver safety services with Saskatchewan Government Insurance, go back and re-read the law.

The new law was designed to improve the safety of our emergency-vehicle personnel.

I suggest Rick Triggs get himself a good lawyer, who can get access to the new law and take this issue to court.

This new law was not designed to be a modern day highway robbery by the Saskatchewan government, it was designed to help protect our emergency-vehicle personnel in doing their job in safety.
