Ask a Trooper: Emergency lights and no emergency?

Email

Question: Recently, I pulled over to the side of the road for a trooper who was coming up fast behind me.

The red lights were on and I could hear the siren. After he passed, I could see way up ahead that he turned his lights off (and siren) and within a minute or so, he pulled into a gas station pump on the other side of the road.

Can troopers or other officers use their red lights and siren just to get to a gas station (or wherever)?
