letting off some smoke.........

okay, i must admit, the cops here are really getting on my nerves.

On my way home, go to pull onto my street for the nice few minutes till i get in bed, come around the corner, and find a cop, lights on, and he's in the middle of the road!

I was thinking WTF is this?!?!?!?!

sure enough, he stops me, and asks for license, registration, and insurance(which i diligently give him).

then he goes, and asks me if i have any weapons or narcotics? i am thinking to myself, do i look like i have any? i just want to get home and go to bed!

so, then he eyeballs my ride, takes his flashlight, and walks around it, not once, not twice, but three times! looking for little things.

Now i have a list of things that he said were illegal, but really arent:

Halo projectors(due to the three little not bright LED's above the rings)
the stick on sunshade(other cops dont give me crap for it, cause it's not illegal!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
my rear dash lights(which were on at the time i turned the corner, cause i wasnt on the highway, i was on my little quiet residential road, almost home, and i want to enjoy my lights!)

Surprisingly, got no flakk for my butchered exhaust, only cause he saw the factory tip, lol

So now i have a $115 fine for the rear dash lights, and a warning to replace my headlights, and remove my cheap, LEGAL sunshade!

i hate cops when they are looking for trouble.

what made it worse, a local in a Lincoln was hiding behind the cop, with the rear bumper facing backwards, so i couldnt see it. I know where he lives, and am going to confront him in a few days, when he isnt hiding.......

Just trying to make his quota, double check your laws and assure your self that you're not in the wrong and take his ass to court if you're correct. "Evil prevails when good men fail to act..."

Sorry to burst your bubble but they don't have "quota" for tickets.
