It's gonna be interesting when I get the Daytona lettered and numbered up as a street legal Nascar clone car and go driving through town.....

You would not get away with driving a car with race numbers in around here...ask me how I know...lol. We have an old and silly law that states that race style numbers on a road car could "incite racing on public roads" which is of course illegal ! However to make it legal just requires an inch wide black cross over the number! Yeah I know...stupid!

I have driven my SCCA, BMW race car with a full cage, race seat with head bolsters, non DOT belts, large numbers, class decals, minimal exhaust and even race tires on the street to events.  I even parked next to a police car at a highway rest stop once and he just looked at me, and probably thought the only way I would park near him was if I had nothing to worry about.  As long as you don't drive like an idiot, they really do have better things to worry about.

Exactly my point doparoamous, big city cops usually have better things to do in most cases ( still self serving self protecting Hippocrates ) however small town America  poor and need revenue so the police gladly step in to pray on the people that pay them . Weather you believe it or not , I could care less , however the sooner all Americans realize this the better off we become
This could easily change if the voter realized that in most towns local police answer to mayor or town council . That said make local police harassment an issue and vote them out office .
If a local city or town is plagued with drugs , crime , etc , which then in turn leads to foreclosed homes then higher taxes as the tax base shrinks , should be traced back to police not going after the big picture , drug dealers , addicts , criminals, etc ........ Why Huh because they are lazy and that takes great effort so its easier for them to target you the working man for any list of bullshit infractions that they ( police ) do themselves each and every day

Example one day while out in my Dodge 12 valve ( 500hp/1000Ft pounds )  an officer pulled next to me and asked my passenger if the truck is fast , passenger replied very rarely beaten , the officer replied  race me right now from this traffic light , my passenger insisted it was a setup ,  cop lets see what you have ( true event in 2012 in Voorhees NJ 08043 ) I proceeded to destroy his crown vic in approx 1/8 mile ( light to light ) Lets say it was a adrenaline rush for me as this never happens or will it again !! My passenger who has soft hands was almost in tears as he thought for sure we were going to jail !!!  
All above events are factual and true .............

I'm lucky the town I live in 99.9% of the cops are on the take, or crooked, shaking down the pimps, prostitutes and drug dealers of their dope and money, they can't be bothered with silly traffic enforcement, HOWEVER the neighboring towns I have to commute thru to get to work, the cops are 150% focused on shaking down/fleecing ALL motorists with Gestapo like tactics, any other "crime" goes unchecked, as the police are nothing but revenue agents for their municipalities...

I know a few of the cops in each town, some will confess that they do have quotas or "performance expectations" required, sometimes even imposed by State guidelines, some even disclose they have "private pools" among their ranks to see who writes the most tickets each day/week/month/year, or the most in one stop, or the most expensive,...I was even told by one "associate" of LE that their unit gets to keep a percentage of ticket fines written, that they "pool", so that at the end of the year they either buy big screen TV's/electronics/etc,etc that the year end winner of whatever "pool" guidelines they make up, the winner takes, one year my "associate" said they had round trip tickets to Hawaii as the "prize"...so much for the line" Fines: it's about safety, not the money", yeah right!

I'm guessing from the way you talk that police have financial gain from issuing tickets over there....not like that here...so it's far less work for them to give a verbal warning that write a ticket and start all the admin that goes worth it.


Maybe the Brits should should exchange notes with their American LE counter parts on the proper procedures or etiquette ?, I'm all for having these high performance British "police interceptor" traffic vehicles for LEO's

I said it before and I say it again , "MIKE FOR PRESIDENT "

What Mike said is so common place in America , WTF happened to our country ??
I read somewhere there is a  college fund set up children of anyone who stands up and rids this scourge who pray on us  

Lets hear from you all in small town America . I just moved to small town in MD and its horrible here as far as the police state . I have daily conversations with mostly white people and overwhelmingly all have had detailed run ins with the BLUE MAFIA

Lol....that car was actually owned by the Police (Hampshire Constabulary which is the next county to West Sussex where I live)....but unfortunately not for active front-line traffic duty...it was built for the 2010 British Pedal Car Grand Prix. Hampshire is a relatively quiet county crime wise. Guess building it kept them busy for a while!
