WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Thousands of kids turned out to Big Truck Day in White Plains and got the chance to ride in a police car and get a view of the city's heavily armored emergency response vehicle on Saturday, May 17, according to News 12 Westchester. 

Kids also had the chance to spray a fire hose and sit behind the wheel of a Department of Public Works truck. The event was such a success, Mayor Tom Roach said he hopes to hold the event next year, News 12 Westchester said.

Nice day for kids but these trucks are a hazard to pedestrians when they go through lights and make turns when it states clearly "no turn on red." The police do this as well especially by the Public Safety building. And, these vehicles had no sirens or flashing lights. The garbage trucks are the worst. As a pedestrian, one expects city workers to obey the traffic laws as every other person is expected to do.
