i did not mean to infer that i would uphold these rules- i am not sure right now, but actually it was my family doc who told me this while i was shadowing him. He told me his girl was sick and he was having her come in to see one of his collegues. That is who originally told me that it was technically unethical. I was just wondering if anyone else had heard this.AStudent said:So if you had a sick 3 year old girl at home you wouldn't run out to get her cough medicine, despite being a doctor?.......please tell me you're not a parent yet
I know a doctor who did this, and not only did he get out of the ticket, but the cop actually put on his lights and siren and escorted him to the hospital. So it can work, though I don't think I'd ever have the guts to try it myself. Actually, this guy is pretty lucky about getting out of tickets; another time, he got out of one because when the cop pulled him over and he went to look for his license, he couldn't find it. So he called his wife to ask her if he'd left it at home, and she started yelling at him over the phone because he'd tracked mud into the house the previous night. The cop felt sorry for him and let him go.virilep said:but i do wonder about speeding tickets and stuff. "i'm about to deliver a baby" .. haha, that'd be awesome.
