Exactly! As an emergency driver, in a high performance 911 system, i have been given some training in high speed avoidance manuevers. But 115 is too fast to be safe except on open freeway.
Emergency personnel can be held criminally liable for driving without "due regard" for the safety of others.
I think this Sherrif will be lucky to avoid jail.
