A Norristown PD Police Cruiser was spotted traveling slowly down the Schuylkill River Trail (with the Blue and Red lights turned on) in Norristown. As accounted by a recent email:
I was heading east about 1/4 mile west of Haws Ave when I saw an NPD SUV coming toward me, with roof-mounted emergency lights flashing red and blue.
At first I thought it was an emergency. But when I realized that the NPD prowler was taking a leisurely westbound cruise (maybe 10 mph) along the SRT, it dawned on me that this is part of the NPD being visible, real VISIBLE on the SRT. THAT is the most law enforcement visibility I've ever seen on the SRT. I gave the officers a smile and wave, which was returned, as they drove off the trail to let me pass.
Many thanks to the Norristown PD for being pro-active, I hope at some point that a regular bicycle patrol could be justified.
