    What are your thoughts? I don't know protocols on pulling over but in my opinion if it came to patient care I would have drove away but that would probably not help things.

    driving an ambulance does not exempt you from the rules of the road, and fleeing a state trooper who is attempting to pull you over is generally frowned upon by all involved. especially a high speed chance, than you are committing numerous violations including failure to stop, and most ambulances I know don't handle well to begin with, let alone with you are being chased by the cops with a patient in the back.

    We discussed this when it happened a couple of years ago: https://emtlife.com/threads/trooper-vs-paramedic.12404/

    A little back story and what happened to the trooper:
