RE: Cops, Valentine One (no Quattro content)
Good point! A 40+ will do a LOT better splainin' it to the judge than
a 21. Prolly did make the right move (for him).
Sticking up for my little 'bro here, I agree with what he did. He's a 21
year old guy...driving in a nice car with out of state tags. If the cop
were to have to chase him down *again*, I think it's safe to say that they
cop might be a little bit pissed. Regardless of the cops intentions
(revenue enhancentment), you have to cooperate. If you mess with the bull,
you might get the horns. I'll give in to the bull and take the ticket to
court. As in his case, there are lots of places for cops to make mistakes.
I've never paid full price on the revenue enhancement scheme. Been pulled
over twice and ticketed twice. One case, the judge threw out because I had
a valid argument about identifying my car. The other case, the nice judge
gave everyone a break...reduced mine to a 64 in a 55 (from something above
75, maybe a 79, if I remember correctly).
When people continue driving and disobey occifer's instructions, we end up
with Rodney King incidents... It not an excuse, but a reality. Beware.
