Cool One-Man Crime Spree...

I'm on a regular, one-man crime spree.

I get pulled over a couple of weeks ago for no headlights.

Just over an hour ago I get pulled over just north of Cedar Falls for no front plate. Must have been a slow day for the State Patrol.

Anyone else want to join me in this spree?

The Trooper was really cool about it, but let me know I needed to remedy the situation or next time it would not be a warning.

FYI... It was only a warning. In Iowa, for no front plate, the fine is $87 and it's NOT a moving violation.

Yeah, I will never put a front plate on my car. Hell no, and I am a Police Officer in Ohio where it is illegal to not have front plates. I will never pull someone over for it and I will never put one on.

They are honestly pretty pointless. PA people get to drive in NJ w/o them. Just rguergvjhsdfgf..... Some things irritate me... I dont get why it matters. Someone will chime in, but I just dont see the point. Wonder what the ratio of states that require it to states that dont is.... Can it be like Self Service gas stations? I know NJ and a FEW others at best dont have SS. Shrug. Cheers.

No LEO would write a ticket to another LEO for something like that. Maybe for nearly killing someone.... And even that is a big maybe. There is a brotherhood, call it professional courtesy.... But if it's another LEO or family member, there is a very high chance that there will be no pen to paper observed.

Then you have the anomalies, the cops that will write on their own. Luckily, these are not common creatures.

If front plates are so important and required then why aren't they on motorcycles too? I will not put the front plate on either....

How the heck do you get a ticket (or pulled over) for no head-lights?...They either come on by themselves, or you turn them on early????

Will you stop a car with no front plate as probable cause under the pretext of another motivation?
For example, you think the car and occupants are suspicious and use no front plate as a reason to stop them to find out who they are.

If I am fairly confident something isn't right like I see someone smoking a blunt) then sure. Chances are I could find something else though. I can go out right now and pull over any car I see for something lol. Ohio has so many moving violations that you can really pull someone over for anything. I can pull someone over for weaving in their own lane. I know no one out there can drive in a perfectly straight line unless they are purposely trying.

If I remember, OP said in a separate thread they were in a parking lot that had really bright lights. I don't recall mine not coming on in parking lots with bright lights, but it must happen.

Sometimes I've wanted to be a police officer, just to ticket other police officers. Look, I've got the most respect for you guys and putting your lives on the line for others, but when those lights are not on, you're just another driver and that means you can't go 10-15 over the speed limit.

Police in my area have a hard time understanding that laws apply to all, not just non-police people.

Of course I don't mean you in particular, just police in my area

Just a thought, I think the lights and siren use is actually pretty rare compared to the majority of calls police actually "respond" to...I would give them the benefit of the doubt that they are a lot of times still getting to a call of some kind as quickly and safely as they can, whether the lights or siren are on or not.

They still turn off until you turn them back on or until you turn the car off. It goes back to the auto position automatically so they come on when needed the next time.

There are A LOT of times when we need to get somewhere quickly and can't use the sirens. You don't want bad guys to know you're coming or they will just run. I probably go lights and sirens 3-5 times a month. NOW I completely understand where you are coming from. Most cops do speed when they shouldn't and when they aren't on a call. Now me, I drive the speed limits bc it's fun to watch all the speeders catch up to me and slow down then cause a traffic jam behind me bc everyone is afraid to pass.

NOW if you want a hilarious video...search "florida state trooper pulls over cop". HILARIOUS! haha
