Cop Holds Up Streetcar For Pita Pit Sandwich

Posted by Matt Davis on Mon, Jun 30, 2008 at 3:08 PM

Yes, I AM obsessed with suburban cops on our public transit today. From Transit Sleuth:

So when I was strolling down into town last weekend I stumbled upon this absolutely ridiculous disrespect the Beaverton Police paid to downtown Portlanders waiting for the Streetcar. This police officer, who probably didn't need to be downtown in the first place - who knows - parked right in the tracks in a completely illegal way. You might ask why did he park this way? Well I'll tell you, it was because he parked here and strolled happily into the Pita Pit across the street. Meanwhile the streetcar operator like a good little citizen sat there, not running the whistle and waited.

I don't suppose anyone fancies filing a Citizen-initiated citation against this chap, do they?
