No Police Escorts for Local Car Clubs?

I just got off the phone with Jim Cambron, President of the Heart of Dixie Region of the Porsche Club of America about their 50th Anniversary celebration that will be going on this weekend here in Huntsville. And one of the coolest things they will have is a line of Porsches spanning over 50 years of the car's heritage.

Well, when I asked him if he had a police escort for the parade, he told me how the Huntsville Police Department Special Operations Department which is in charge of these type of escorts has a policy of "not providing escorts for any car clubs." What an absurd policy.

With as much as the enthusiasts bring to the local economy and social culture of this city, as well as the lack of prosecution of illegals that hit our cars (from my own personal experience), I think this is a ridiculous policy. I mean, the Hot Rod Power Tour has a good chance of coming through the city again, and it looks like Huntsville once again will be turning a cold shoulder to those enthusiasts like they did in 2005.

What are your thoughts on the subject?
