100% true, screw you.
My Dad was driving.
My Mom was in the passenger's seat.
I was in the back.
Here's his car: http://www3.telus.net/bryster/dadscapri.jpg
Mustangs and Capris were the same chassis from 1979 to 1986. Lots of them on the road.
We were on the south end of the Knight St. Bridge at night, the Mustang flew past and turned off onto Bridgeport. Next thing we knew we were being pulled over.
I still remember my dad trying to plead his case to the cop, my parents going to court and loosing with the judge saying "I tend to side with the officers on matters like this", Obviously it was their word against his.
You can say you would rather have an innocent get nailed than a guilty go free, until it happens to you. Growing up with that experience has just soured my opinion the system in general.
If this had happened today, my dad would have lost his car for a week and had to pay impound charges, who knows what other impact on his daily life, before he could even plead his case? And that would be OK???
