A recent letter writer was correct that police cars are involved in many traffic accidents ["Patrol cars seem like accident magnets," Nov. 28].

A few days ago, I was driving on Jerusalem Avenue in Wantagh when a patrol car made a sudden U-turn without signaling. The officer almost crashed into my vehicle because he wasn't being careful, so I blew my horn to let him know I was in his path.

Accident avoided. But he chased me down, pulled me over and wrote me a summons for honking my horn at a cop.
