Between drunk drivers and distracted drivers I would think this is a very real risk for police.

I also get nervous when I see people with car problems stopped on edge of highway and standing around their car talking on cell phone and not paying attention to traffic that could do the same thing to them.

It is too common, but this is not a recent development. For years the highest number of police injuries and deaths have been from third party vehicles when making traffic stops.
Studies in the 80's showed drunks tended to drift towards the active lightbars on police vehicles.

Don't pull cars over on the side of the road. Everyone needs to take an exit or pull into a driveway off the road.

No random thoughts?

Exactly! If you force someone to stop on the side of the road you run the risk of getting pancaked. This puts police And citizens in danger, and it needs to cease immediately.

BG, you being a subject matter expert please provide a brief blog spot on how much DUI prevention and awareness training new drivers have to have before getting a license. This deer in headlights problem seems to be all too common. (If I was a LEO there's no way I would attempt to do my job from the drivers side of the shoulder). Our system seems backwards in that the real valuable training (lifestyle and ego altering education) is not required until after someone has already screwed up like this (assuming they live to be ordered training post conviction). Videos like these could be used as a teaching tool as in: look folks this happens alot, it can happen to you if you DUI, and then your life and those impacted by your ignorance and arrogance will basically be hosed forever. The deer driving the white car is now officially hosed to the extent that they may never get to drive again - too late.

Too many cops- can't turn around twice without knocking over 23 of them.

Are these drivers the type that our host makes his living?
