Why do public officials in D.C. get to run red lights?

File this entry under Third World America, i.e. a country where our laws don’t apply to the most powerful people in our government. We were walking toward Metro Center in Washington D.C. around 11pm when we witnessed a mini-convoy consisting of two black SUVs and two police SUVs sounding their horns, blaring their lights, and running a red light at the intersection of New York Avenue and 12th Street (pictured below). So, why don’t traffic laws apply to public officials in our nation’s capital? In our opinion, this red-light running behavior is demoralizing and dangerous to our democracy.
