Subject: Nurses and cops cultural norm fyi
At a ...... last January a Po-lice there got talking in a late night reverie about who he has booked from our class.
He said there is an unwritten rule that police generally will not book nurses for driving offences - presumably speeding or similar.
He said it's because at times of major injury (of police? the public? victims of crime?) nurses are the guardian angels and get major sympathy from the police.
That might be a critical factor for whether dangerous driving from fatigue or whatever might not get proper police attention??
