A matter of public safety

Tuesday, September 19th, around 2:00 PM, I had an unsettling experience. Driving on FM 813, about three miles from US 287, I came upon a State Trooper SUV traveling 25-30 MPH, repeatedly weaving over the center line, then over the shoulder line. I felt the driver must have been impaired and called 911. I gave the tag number to the Waxahachie dispatcher and a detailed account as I followed the vehicle, concerned for the safety of the driver and any other person in his path. I stayed with the dispatcher. He never exceeded 40 MPH. Most of the time it was 30-35 MPH, though his driving remained erratic. That section is zoned at 55 MPH except for several curves. The call was ended at one point, dispatch assuming he would soon enter Waxahachie. Read the full story and more in your Weekend edition of The Ennis News. Be informed, subscribe today!
