Yep, as a firefighter I can say that is very correct. It is sorta like the
cops pulling over the fire truck. Technically the truck is not aloud to
speed on the way to a fire. One copy having a bad day pulled us over and
gave us a ticket. The call we were on was a false alarm, so no damage was
done, but it was a real fire I am sure there would have been a much larger
political mess.

Anyway, this is off topic enough.
