Well, here in Florida police are not exempt from any traffic laws (*) except
under certain specific situations.  On the other hand, if a sign said

(*) Here in Florida, even those emergency situations, certain traffic laws
still apply, and "drive wherever physically possible" is never the rule for
anyone.
