RE: Cops Tailgating
Are you serious?! 203 cigarettes warrants being asked to get out of the
car? I got pulled over one evening because
my new tires "looked worn out". I have a hard time determing if someone
has worn tires in the middle of the night traveling at 35mph but I guess
he has better eyes then I. He was fishing for a DUI but I was not under
the influence - oh well for him. At least I haven't been asked to step
out of the car again.
