Exclamation Oh snap! The 5-OH!

Does your exhaust (let alone your sexy ride) bring unwanted attention, resulting in getting pulled over by the police?

my old square Volvo 740GL attracted the cops....it was dull silver that looked like it had been sanded with 10grit many times ( paint job was soo weathered )....had one muffler instead of the normal two, had no spedometer ( bork3d! )

It was teh_s3x though. Cops liked it too.

Thats jokes, yet i feel bad. The cops in my area are complete as________. My friend owns a V-DUB GTI VR6 in bright orange. He got 18' but placed spacers between the rims so it sticks out more. Cop pulls him over and says his tires are too big and requires the car to have mud flaps. a $120 ticket.

2 Hours later same cop drives by him and pulls a U-turn and flags him over. He gets out, looks at the car and says. "tires are too wide, you need mud flaps." hands him another 120 ticket. then he drives off

The next day, he was driving by tim hortons, the same cop was sitting there in his car. he pulls out of plaza and flags him over again. This time giving him a speeding ticket for $100 and another ticket for 120 for not having mud flaps.

Two days later, after he was leaving work. the same cop comes outta no where and flags him over....he says, "its been two days. Where's your mud flaps?".....the cop goes back to his car to write yet...another infamous $120 ticket. The cop finally asks my buddy, "do you have anything to say?" My buddy replies "see you in court."

I've went to court to fight my ticket. The court system is more focused on reducing the sentence oppose to eliminating it. The cops and courts are just out to cash grab. its sad really. I'll talk to my buddy to see the results. His date should be comming up soontimes.

I've gotten 1 ticket and three warnings in my Focus.

The ticket was for "Assured Clear Distance" which means I rear-ended an Chevy Equnox.

The warnings, however, do involve some a-hole local cops.

Warning one was for an underbody tube was visible from a distance.

Warning two was for 64 in a 45 where the cop didn't catch up to me until I was out of the car.

Warning three was for an excesivly loud stereo, and the cop proceeded to inquire about my previous warnings.
I corrected him about both previous warnings.
