That's another famous BS tatic used up here, the push on stopping "Street Racing" and yet when an event at a track is run they line up to write as many tickets as possible when the people leave. Makes you wonder what the value of doing the right thing is.
Not all cops are bad, I got pulled over two weeks ago for speeding (and I was), the speed limit changed but you don't hit the residential area for a while and I was well above the new limit. The cop was polite but said the residents had lodged complaints about excessive speed in the area so he was sent to crack down. He knocked it down to $50 with no points. I deserved it.
That was the nice one, I've more than my share that have no idea of the new law and how it's worded (I keep a laminated copy in the cab) and few even know the Transportation act. Those are the ones that infuriate me. Two excellent examples; a ghost car was passed by a young driver and caught up with him and then paced him and edged him on until he was well over the 50km above the posted limit and then could write him up for "Street Racing". The second, a cop with his wife was off duty and was passed by a speeding car, he called on his cell to get a cop car on him but he also followed at speeds over 160km with his wife in his personal car so he could ensure the "Street Racing" ticket could be issued. I didn't read where the cop was written up.
And my last beef (promise), how many cops do you know that have speeding tickets or DUI on their records?.........exactly.
