Two cousins started this up because they kept on coming up to auto accidents and they decided to do something about it!

From what I read on there site and heard from local news sources, they are doing an amazing job and they don't get in the way of the Emergency Personal Workers.

In fact they have support in with the Peterborough Lakefield Community Police Services that tell them they are doing a great job, to keep up the good work and there have been Officers whom thank them for their help.

In result I hope that you see that they are not hurting anyone and if the Police felt like they were a liability Issue, they would of shut them down from the get go!

Thank you for taking the time to read my E-mail and for considering my request!

Well it is true that we do not have the authority Peterborough police have told me that do not have a problem with us setting-up t/c at scene that no other service is at, we have even been at scenes that police where at and they did not take over t/c even at MVA's

You haven't had an issue being sued thus far. Good for you, until the day your luck runs out, you get sued, and you don't have the appropriate automobile insurance coverage for the situations you've found yourself in.

I basically summed up your take on your look-a-like volunteer organization in my first post to this topic: you don't want to do it the right way, you want to do it your way.

Is it explained to the people that sign up to join your group that they assume any and all liability in doing anything that they do, and that if they get struck by another vehicle at one of the scenes that they attend that their automobile insurance coverage will not be valid as it exceeds the scope of coverage and they would be left footing the bill for any lawsuit? Or do you just give them some bogus rank, an orange cigarette lighter powered LED light and a blaze orange toque and tell them to hit the road and do good, caution to the wind?

Another thing is I have noticed that most of you concerned citizens are located in or around the GTA, so what do you care what goes on in Peterborough?

They'll stay in Peterborough, and you'll stay in yours!

Suggestion of the day:

Worry not about what goes on in the world, but what goes on in your own personal life!

Either you're running off the same IP address as the supreme safety leader, you're a member of this farce of a group that doesn't give a shit about doing things the proper way, or you're a friend of one of those two.

Constructive criticism was attempted but this guy has taken the attitude of "fuck it, we'll do it live" and is hoping for the best without preparing for the worst. This not only jeopardizes the people he claims to want to help, but also leaves whoever from his organization attends the scenes open to incredible liability with no insurance for the situation.

Not to mention a lack of training, insufficient equipment, etc.

Good intentions, piss-poor execution, and an even worse reaction to constructive suggestions from members of the law enforcement community that are in the know.

I can't tell if you are just really stupid or so full of yourself that you choose to ignore the advice of people with decades of Law Enforcement experience.

I'll ask my friend with Peterborough PS what they really think of you guys. I'll bet it's a lot different than what you are telling us.

Your antics, outrageous and immature behaviour speaks volumes to your character. Thank you for confirming what we've all thought. Stay classy chump! Pathetic.

As you can see, not much intelligence is required to flick on the switch for his amber lights, put on an orange toque and stand there without any training waiting to get hit, which apparently is also known as directing traffic.

This guy is doing a fantastic PR job for this volunteer organization. About as effective as their insurance coverage from what I've seen.

Ok, perfect, so it's just you and "your second in command" that are out there exceeding the scope of the automobile insurance coverage. Inadequate insurance resulting in zero coverage being the current situation that you describe. Good to know :thumbsup:

You know this reminds me of those clowns that would dress up as super heros and go out on the town looking to help people. Then one day, one of them got stabbed. Good intentions, piss-poor execution. If you're going to do it, do it right or don't do it at all.
