    I think he was CHP. After he asks if people were ok, he tells them to move if they can, and take care of it, (insurance, presumably) at the next exit. Nobody tells him to get lost, they complied, if they could. Considering he was working backwards from the blockage, he couldn't have the lights of his car.

    I think he may have been Caltrans, to be honest.

    Could be. Clearly he wasn't just some chump off the street.

    I don't know. Most CHP wouldn't be carrying a camera, unless it was one that was state issued, and then he couldn't have uploaded it.

    Uh guys? That comment about was said tongue in cheek. I used to be a copper, and I've done my share of huffing and puffing.

    Actually Joesph, there are many agencies that are now using "body cameras" on their cops. And knowing how anal the CHP hierarchy is up in Sacto, I can't believe they don't have them.
    They can be either a blessing, or a curse. Depending on how badly the officer screws up.:confused:
    I know that I sure as hell would not have wanted to have to wear one of those things, and I was always cautious about how I behaved. But the fact is, that everybody screws up occasionally.

    I had assumed it to be a body cam, but California passed a law in June of last year to begin a trial of 200 officers wearing body cams. I don't think it went into effect yet.

    Not sure about "typical"? If the drivers don't hablan and speak only Spanish or Russian I would say yes.
