Recently I found myself driving next to a woman using two hands to apply face powder – resting the powder container on the steering wheel while using the brush with her other hand, heading south on U.S. 401 at I-540. She even managed to change lanes at the same time.
No big thing – we all see inattentive driving frequently. But this stood out because the woman was wearing the uniform of the Wake County Sheriff’s Department and was a sergeant with three stripes.
I hope someone tells her that setting an example like that is not a very good reflection on her or the department. When you choose to wear a badge and uniform, you subject yourself to higher standards.
