    I’m with Kenneth and Vindicaire on this. It drives me nuts when people ask me for a ride. Unless the person is broken down, a crime victim, etc., I usually offer to call them a cab.

    I only know how to drive to two different places when I’m working………the address I’m being dispatched to for a call and the county jail.

    If you’re a minor your parents need to do their job and make sure you get home okay.

    Your local police department is not a free taxi service. Myself and many officers will you a lift if you are a crime victim, are lost, have a broken down car, ect. Even then you may not get a ride all the way home, if your house is “far”. You may just get a rid to a well lit gas station in the good part of town where you can call a friend, taxi or wait for the bus. I usually don’t give rides to people that just don’t feel like walking.

    If you are minor, then I will give you a ride home and also serve your parents with a $75 ticket for letting you be out past curfew.

    If a cop happens to make contact with you for some reason to investigate why you are at a certain location at a certain hour, he MIGHT offer to drive you the rest of the way if it’s close and he feels like it. But chances are he won’t, and you cannot call the police for a ride. Taxis serve that purpose.

    15 days ago when I was living in Florida, I was pulled over on a university campus by a university police officer. He said he pulled me over for running a stop sign which I did not. Ofcourse, once he pulled me over, he administered a field sobriety test that he had his partner videotape. I passed the test with no problem because I was not under the influence. After the test was completed, the cop told me to lock up my car and leave it where it was at (a parking lot) and he drove me to my home which was approximately 4 miles away and I was released on my doorstep and not charged with anything. Not even a ticket for running the stop sign!

    Any officer will give you a ride. Right to the curfew center. Police officers do not have the time to waste giving out taxi rides to those that can plan ahead.

    It relies upon on why you have been pulled over, how far from the scene of the provide up on your place, and the guidelines of the police branch. making use of your automobile living house would be a courtesy given to you by the police in lieu of the towing and impound expenses at your cost.

    That would be one hell of a nice cop to give you a ride home.
