Yeah, if he did it down in the States he would have been tazered or shot.

Just having a blue shirt on could mean a ticket for the smallest thing so they could get a mark on the board. Paid time off was the usual prize. What I really love is how they called everyone a civilian, like they were not.

And yes, there are so many out there that give the rest a bad name.
It's against federal law for departments to impose quotas. Although what you have said is very true, except the civilian part... Yes you are a civilian, and so is an officer, subject to the same laws (to an extent). But an officer is the only person in this country that can deprive you of your civil rights. They also will lay down their own life for you, a civilian, over their own. A thin blue line, the shepherd protecting the sheep.

Too many people forget that and take it for granted.

I'm US, got one nearing the bridge crossing back to the states, for having a radar detector on, I was not speeding. they took the unit and fined me close to $300 to boot. I said screw it, didn't tell the wife, 2 months later I got legal papers in the mail, where if I didn't pay up they were ready to put a lien on my house! I paid. Glad I don't have to commute up there any more!

I chirped my tires from a stoplight making a right once...it was about 11pm or so & no one was around. Went into the right lane instead of the outside lane (was going to be making an immediate left) and some cop busted a u-turn to write me a ticket for making a "wide right turn". My dad was a cop when I was growing up so I'm always respectful of them when I interact with them but this guy was just itching for something. Total d1ck move.

I contested it & requested a trial...he didn't show so it was tossed. Hopefully you'll have a similar outcome. Good luck!

The state police in Indiana have a Shelby that likes to pull over vehicles in southern Indiana. He pulled behind me but then eagerly passed me when he realized I had cruise control on. In KY, I had four cop cars park around me, but they just wanted to trade vehicles.

There are ways for them to collect money that doesn't involve losing license and impounding the car... I for one need my license and losing one over something so miniscule as this would cost me more then just the ticket + other fees associated with that.

Are you maybe thinking of "hiring quotas" as in, X% of the workforce must be of a minority race, etc? That is against Federal law. I don't know that the Fed can dictate to a local police force how they manage their ticketing policies.

I get that it was unintentional, but please tell me what you think a dash cam is going to show. Your tires spun in front of a cop. I do not see where a dash cam is going to show anything. If the story as you tel it is true, I think it is overkill by the LEO. I have to be honest though, every time I have gotten in trouble in a car, I damn sure deserved it. I also have never seen any of this profiling that seems to be so evident on the site. It kind of makes me wonder.

Shoot, now you need a tow for the truck (because cleaning the lights isn't good enough) and a ride home. That's a few dollars. Like a week's pay.

So the LEOs are now the judges.

I am sorry for the rant but yes, I believe it is about the money.
I was in Texas a couple months ago an an officer pulled me over and did an inspection. He marked me for a dirty license plate on my trailer... said he couldn't see it. I was just whatever... he got pissed off because I made him slow down (unintentionally).

I appreciate what the the stunting laws are trying to do (curb street racing) but check this line out:

"Driving a motor vehicle in a manner that indicates an intention to cause some or all of its tires to lose traction with the surface of the highway while turning."

Now tell me that is not BS?
Whats BS about it. It is very easy to turn your car at even good rates of speed without loosing traction. It is also very easy to play and have fun and drift / power slide the car through a corner. Doing the later is frowned upon by the law. This is back to what I said before. Do I play in our car....you bet. Do I at times get caught....you bet. Is it my fault when it happens....you bet!
I got a tint ticket in the the WS6 we had before the 1LE. I got the tint ticket because I pissed off a state patrolman going to fast and sliding the car a bit around a corner. Had I not been playing, he would have never pulled me over, but since he did not get the radar locked (or something), the only concrete evidence he had was dark tint. Was the tint really a big deal.....no. Had I just got caught playing...yes. Could it have been much worse....YES!

Getting closer and closer to martial law these days. Almost a good thing we still have the 2nd because they'll be shooting us for chirping our tires next.

Do the cops in Canada have dash cams like in the US? that could be used as evidence to show the severity of the situation and possibly exonerate you if he was right behind you as you said.

yikes....

I was on an incline and the Hill assist was not engagin (strange) but it didn't... had a cop directly behind me.. and I also get a little nervous on inclines in my LS3 trying to find that perfect balance from Clutch to gas... anyhow... light turned green and I spun the back tires a little and thought shit... here goes... he pulled up next to me later at the next light and gave me a sheepish smile... I'm guessing he realized that my spin out was not on purpose.... any how...

sheesh... that punishment is insane. Good luck getting this reduced if not thrown out.

Or the cop thought you were showing golf with a fast start and chirping tires. If this ever happens again I don't think you will get any leniency next time.
