I've gotten honked at twice now by police in marked vehicles since I started my new commute back in April. Once was in Keller, as noted here. The second time was by a pickup truck with "Fort Worth Police" lettering on Westport Parkway, a road shown here. In both cases, I was riding safely and legally. In both cases, there did not appear (to me) to be any emergency that would have caused any special action by the police. In the second case, pulling over could have caused a fall due to the very poor road surface (though I was VERY careful moving over after waving to the following police vehicle). For those of you that have never heard a police vehicle honk, their honk has a VERY distinctive and attention-getting sound, which makes sense. In both cases, I moved far right, and then moved back into the lane immediately after the police vehicle passed. In neither case, did the police appear perturbed about me moving back into the lane after they passed. In retrospect, I'm conflicted about my "move over" response to those two honks.
I know that ChipSeal has a policy about how to stop in this sort of situation and it does NOT involve pulling off the road, but rather in stopping in the lane, much as a larger vehicle would.
I do NOT want to get at odds with the local constabulary, but this police horn honking seems a little over the top. I'd normally ignore motorist honks, but these are emergency vehicles, and I don't really have a way to know if there might be some reason I'm unaware of that they need to get by quickly.
In a prior episode with the Fort Worth Police, reported here, I was unable to get anyone to return my calls. Advice?
