Michigan State Police Drag Races

Michigan State Police set something of a land speed record to shuttle snake anti-venom from Detroit to Traverse City. Using a Pony Express style relay, the covered the 256 mile trip (which normally takes ~5 hours) in 2 hours and 15 minutes. That's an average of over 113 miles an hour! I don't know what the laws are in Michigan, but in New Mexico, red lights and a siren did NOT grant any privileges to break traffic laws. How many people did they endanger in this Cannonball Run to save one guy bitten by an African Puff Adder? Anyone ever hear of helicopters?
