have a couple of stories myself good and bad
1) 3 years back when I was still N i drove an extra friend that night because it was pouring rain, got pulled over for over passenger. cop saw that i was able to take my class 5 in about 3 months, so after he gave me the ticket he told me to dispute it and hope that I pass my class 5.
I followed his instructions, disputed the ticket and took and passed my class 5
fast forward 1 year after the ticket, i show up at the court and see the cop there. he asks me what im in for, I remind him what he told me to do and told him I passed my class 5. He asked me before going into the court room if I was going to plead guilty, I told him yes because what I did was wrong and thanked him for giving me a chance
we walk inside the court room, and he dropped the case
i was able to walk away free, and he smiled at me as I walk out
sadly though, I couldnt shake his hand or thank him as there was 10 other cases he needed to attend that day
some cops are really nice, and im always honest and try to be helpful in their presence
however, sometimes you get the not so good...
today when I drove out, I stopped at a red light on alderbridge facing no.3 road
i saw a cop drove by on no.3 road passing alderbridge and i see him looking at me
not thinking much of it, i turn right to no.3 road only to see the cop stopped on the right side lane, just waiting
there was traffic jam too, after about 2 minutes or so I end up side by side with the cop and then i see him signal to merge behind me
shortly after he merges behind me and pulls me over.
at this moment im just thinking, what did i do.. i was stuck in traffic, and he only noticed me as I was stopped at a red light
he comes up to me and asks for driver id + insurance (which i had prepared) and told me hes only doing a driver id check
after a while he comes back and starts pointing out at my diffuser stating how its dangerous and can cut people (its round edged and smoothed out)
after that, he continues to try to find something to give me ticket worth
he tried pointing out how my intercooler is blocking my rear view mirror and was hesitant in believing that is where the stock intercooler is coming
about 15 minutes of talking with me outside my car, he lets me go with warning and told me to get my car inspected
i mean its cool he gave me a warning but him camping out for me just had me confused... i commited nothing wrong and he just had to target me for no reason, and tried to find a reason to give me a ticket
i know not all cops are bad/assholes but sometimes when you do get that one or two, it just makes me unhappy
