My question is: in a critical situation when a person has an urgent, legitimate and provable need to get to a hospital will the law be understanding? What’s better – to keep driving and ignore the sirens or to stop and try to explain? What if every minute is critical?
On a lesser scale, what if any delay will almost definitely result in a certain accident? Once I had to race home when my kid was that close to having one, on another occasion an adult passenger in my car had to urgently find a restroom and I had to speed up in order to save my vehicle from being ruined. What would police say if you lead them to your house and run to the toilet?
I know at least two real life lawyers who read this and a few home-grown ones with lots of armchair experience. What should a person do?
