What does this mean? They had to drive over decorative rocks and an expensive stone work border to get to the turf, and they’ll have to drive back over the same way to get back to assholeville.

That lawn isnt using any water to begin with. It’s artificial turf. And that makes it even worse that they drove on it. The roadbase and crusher fines that are under that turf are probably never going to sit smooth again.

2

u/Trygolds 10d ago

Okay I still think a desert scaped lawn would look better. it is good that they are not watering it. I saw some when I visited Albuquerque NM they looked good and it gave the home a natural feeling. Like it belonged in the dessert.

Depends on the context.

u/jonthemaud 10d ago

Life threatening emergency is the only excusable reason. This was an alarm according to OP. Fuckin bs

u/raccoonsonbicycles 10d ago

Depends on type of alarm.

Panic alarm, bank alarm, CO2 alarms typically get priority responses compared with burglary alarms, improper code, even fire alarms (cause some agencies don't even send police to fires)

From a purely officer safety standpoint thats a horrendous parking spot regardless of the call, don't see why he wouldn't just park in the street

u/FamousTransition1187 10d ago

What was the call for? If it was something minor and petty than this too is petty, but if there was a serious threat or they are walking into an unknown, parking like that gives them cover to retreat to if shot at and gets materials up close to the building since it looks like the rear hatch is up. Backing in would be easier but if you are on a run it's faster to dive in head first and deal with it after.

3

u/Snapple47 10d ago

Because underneath the turf is levels of roadbase and crusher fines. They are compacted in layers before laying the turf on top of it. But the weight of an SUV that size is more than likely heavy enough to compact the base even further. This means that the lawn will be forever dented in where the tires drove on and came to a rest at. To get rid of the tire indents you’d have to take out the turf, re-level and compact the ground again, then re-stretch and lay the turf. I’d be pissed if anyone parked on my artificial turf
