[UPDATE: According to somebody who ought to know, this is not what a Lt. Gov. motorcade looks like these days. So, my bad.]
I don’t know, why are the lights on on these CHP prowlers?
To make the people inside feel good?
Looks that way.
I mean, this is the entire motorcade, so it’s not like cross-traffic is being stopped or anything.
I mean, don’t you want to be kind of low profile? Oh, I see, you feel that not enough people pay attention to
you, so everybody stare at me while I ride to the Starbucks?

IMO, our California Highway Patrol shouldn’t always do what
the Lt. Gov VIPs want.
But here’s why it’s generally in the interest of the CHP to patronize electeds.
(Oh, and next time you roll through town, CHP, in addition to the flashing lights, you should honk your horns and activate your sirens, like every minute. Hurray!)
