The following vid, originally posted to Youtube by the driver who filmed it, is remarkable not least for the politeness of the Illinois State Trooper it features, quite apologetic after being called out for unsafe speed and cell phone use by the truck driver he’d just pulled over for using his horn in an unlawful manner (to call the officer out for speed as he passed). 

Recommended practice: don’t try this at home? Weigh in below…

Doubtful at least that the now virally high-profile nature of the incident will do anything short-term positively for the No. 2 reader-named problem related to the Compliance, Safety, Accountability program: The deteriorating relationship between drivers and law enforcement. The vid follows the chart.
