Fire vehicle driver deserved a ticket

I would like to inform you of something that happened on Saturday, July 12, 2014.

I left Sussex shortly after 11 a.m. to attend the parade in Port Jervis, N.Y. Traffic was steady when i was just about to the top of High Point near the entrance ot the park, a vehicle (white with lights across the top) hit the sire. I pulled over for the vehicle to pass. This was not an emergency vehicle. My daughter asked why I pulled over when no one else did. While waiting at the base of Route 23 for the light, I was just behind the Sussex vehicle, also heading to the parade. We were stopped for a red light o Route 209 North with signs clearly marked, "no turn on red." Well, this Sussex fire vehicle made that turn with a red light. I feel this was wrong. He was representing Sussex, N.J., and is not above the law and needs training, or a ticket, or not to be driving a fire vehicle.

I later saw this vehicle, which turned right by the home that I was at to watch the parade, I called out to him and said he deserved a ticket.

So, this is my beef for the day. Sometimes it is the little things that can affect a day. Disrespect for law — for me — is a big one.

Therefore, I feel someone needs to be told.
