share your cops stories...

i've been pulled over 4 times the past fucking month... im on a roll! do i get an award?

1
first time i ever got pulled over.. ran a stop sign on my campus cuz there was no car approaching the intersection (slow mph road, open area).. didnt see the cop, and got pulled over.. pleaded not guilty cuz i was shit scared of getting points on my license, and was offered to lower to a parking ticket cuz its my first offense
-

2
second time.. in a mall parking lot tho, a bunch of friends and i were revving during entrance, so we got reported for "street racing" just asked for all of the drivers' license to run a record check i guess.. nothing big.
-

3
another time.. some guy was driving damn slow so i got pissed and tailgated him.. when my left turn finally approached, i went on the opposite lane to cut him off and make my turn.. and oops, guess what, that car was an undercover! (black chevy malibu with tints). i kind of got self-defensive, but the said the could care less about giving out a ticket cuz its not their jurisdiction, so after some good lecturing me they let me go with a warning.. one of them was bitchy but the other one seemed more cool.. and this is the first time i got pulled over since tinting windows, and i could have gotten fined for that too, but i told them its legal (cuz i thats what i thot).. hard to tell cuz it was night
-

4
the next one.. in a parking lot again, i was given a summons for being at a park after 9pm (i was just taking pics of my car too, not like drug dealing or anything).. my only options were plead "guilty to pissing in public", "guilty to drinking in public", and "not guilty".. i was gonna go to court cuz its ridiculous, but didnt have time so i just pleaded guilty for pissing and sent in money order for fine amount.. months later they rejected payment, and sent a mail notifying they have a warrant for my arrest
-

5
about a month ago.. my friend was speeding and i kinda blocked cop's way cuz i was busy chatting and not paying attention to rear mirror (i honestly believe i didnt look away for more than 15 secs).. pulled down my front 2 windows (stupid me, i should have pulled down other 2 too).. got summons for 3 windows (back sides, and rear.. thats when i learned they were illegal) and blocking his way (3 points).. pleaded not guilty, hoping the judge can be lenient.. was offered to lower to parking ticket if i remove my tints.. so i did that today, and will have to go police station to get a confirmation, then show up in court next week
-

6
2-3 weeks ago, first time i got pulled over with my Valentine1 (i put it away as he was pulling me over, so i could have one less reason to give him for speeding.. i pulled over, rolled windows down, hands on steering wheel, and talked nicely).. cop must have heard the way i accelerated out of my driveway, so i suddenly get radar alerts (he was 1 block 1 block away from me).. tried not to make it obvious, so i didnt slam the brakes.. i slowed down but still got caught (cuz he was too close).. i normally go 60 :shock: (not anymore lol) but got summons for 42 on 30mph, and tinted windows.. oh and tints are for cops safety? my ass.. the officer was like "u think i didnt see your tinted windows? u think u could get away with it?" (something like that), what a douche... i pleaded not guilty cuz i would remove my tints, and i wanna try to lower my speeding ticket.. court date is end of the month, hope it goes well
-

7
last week, 1 day after installing my coilovers, i was on the NJ Turnpike and decided to have some fun with my new suspension.. i was cutting thru traffic pretty bad until i saw an undercover up ahead (bluish ford crown victoria wint tints and long ass antenna).. i pulled up slowly next to him to make sure (2 lanes away), and made sure i wasnt going faster than traffic.. he pulled me over and said i was speeding (must have seen me in his rear mirror the way i changed lanes).. same routine, windows down, hands on steering, talk nice... he let me go off with a warning maybe undercovers give out less tickets cuz they are not required to like the rest of the officers?? or is it cuz i was in nj? dunno
-

8
last night, i over-relied on my V1.. speeding 60 on 40 on a main local road.. got some low-signal warning but i assumed they were interference.. i slowed down, but too slowly... he either caught my speed at around 50, or he was camping silently.. i told him i didnt know i was speeding, and he asks how fast i was going, i told him "45?" and he rolled his eyes.. lol.. he ran a check on my license record, saw i was in pretty bad shape, so he just wrote me up for no license plate light (i did have... purple; not too bright tho), and inadequate muffler.. huh, apparently aftermarket mufflers are illegal too. well, at least better than speeding ticket. he followed me for a while after i took off. im switching back to stock license plate bulb, and i think im gonna plead guilty for muffler... or should i try to take advantage of potentially lowering the price of the ticket, whatever the amount is? hmm..
-

all of these are without the countless parking tickets i got too.. i might as well forward my paycheck to them :x lessons i learned, dont take chances on local roads, and i think its about time i regain some self-control (should pay for going on tracks instead, would help in self control).. and roll down windows so cops can see inside, put hands on steering wheel to show u comply, and always talk politely.. and i wonder if it would be better to admit and apologize for speeding, and ask to write for a non-points violations instead, before he goes to his car to write u up.

so.. share ur stories, maybe we can learn from each other??

I'm not quite sure the cops are the problem.

Re: share your cops stories...

1st time - 16 years old. I was driving my truck to AutoZone to get a tail-light bulb and was pulled over 4 blocks away. It was at night or else I probably wouldn't have gotten pulled over. No ticket.

2nd time - Driving my friends van to Wal-Mart at like 2-3am last year. Cop said we were driving suspiciously(we were lost and trying to find the right street so I was going like 10-15 under and speeding up /slowing down) so he pulled us over. No ticket, gave us directions to the store :P.

3rd time - "Trespassing" at the train station. I was taking pictures for a class around dusk and a cop drives up along the tracks out of nowhere and starts asking me questions. He makes me put my hands behind my back, searches me, then makes me sit on the hood of his car for 10 minutes while he checked my info. No ticket, but told me next time it's $500 or 30 days in jail. - completely stupid and uncalled for.

Other than that, I'm a good driver (at least when the cops see me :P )

I have far too many stories. I've come to the conclusion that cops are complete assholes and like to jerk people around for power trips. Most are losers from HS who want to still bully people everyday, or they were the losers and want to actually bully people now in the real world.

And to the OP, omg bro I got through your 3rd story and realized you had 6 more lol

Re: share your cops stories...

1st- Back when I was 18 I got pulled over in my truck for doing 49 in a 35. As the cop finished writing the ticket and handing me back all of my information he said, "Oh by the way, nice truck." After I paid the fine I continued on living my life and driving safely for the next 2 years. When I turned 20 I renewed my license; however, the lady at the DMV told me my license had been suspended for 2 years! I asked, "How is this possible? I paid my fine." The lady explained that when you are 18 and get a ticket you must pay the fine AND attend a driver improvement course. I then proceeded to ask why I was never notified about taking a course. She stated that a letter was sent out multiple times to my address (I never received one notice) certified mail. So instead of fighting it I ended up spending my 20th birthday in driver improvement class for 8 hours.

2. Just this past August I was on my way home from a baseball game and exited from the freeway. I needed to merge to the far left lane to turn into my neighborhood... I noticed the headlights of a cop behind me in the left lane, no problem I thought, we were approaching a red light so I figured I would slow down early and get in behind him. As I slowed down I notice the cop slowed down even more and got behind me! Go figure... As the cop pulled me over he knocks on my window and asks for the license and registration, he asks, "Do you know how dark your windows are sir?" Being the idiot I am, I answered, "Pretty dark." He then proceeded to write me a ticket for 18% tint when the legal limit in the state of VA is 50%.
