If I approach an intersection, and there is a school bus to my left, with its flashing red lights on, am I allowed to make a right turn (away from the bus)?

I'd like to know why your officers are so unprofessional and abuse the authority they have, one in particular, LaPorte who instead of making people feel safer act like something out of a B cop movie. That be said maybe you should have higher standards and take complaints regarding officers misconduct more seriously.

There were a number of "theft from vehicle" incidents in Wheaton Forest near Glen Haven in July. My credit card, stolen from my vehicle, was used to purchase metro tickets at the Wheaton Metro station the morning of the theft. Are there security cameras at the station that could be used to ID the suspects?

Can you talk about right-of-way intersection rules in terms of vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists? Who has the right-of-way, for example, if a car is turning right on a red and a pedestrian is crossing on the same red? Should bikes be on sidewalks or in streets? Thanks for taking these questions!
