it is already illegal to smuggle drugs and guns. why make an inanimate compartment illegal? the gov needs better things to spend time and money on then banning everything they can think of.

any time given is servered concurrently anyways. what's the point of making new laws and charging them with more stuff?. they still won't spend any time in jail anyways.

Driving a car on the public streets is neither a right nor a freedom. You can do all kinds of wild mods to a car that doesn't go on the street, like a show car... using the public roads, though, is a PRIVILEGE that's subject to many, many more restrictive regulations than this one. Limiting your ability to install hidden compartments is no more an infringement than not allowing overblown lighting, rusted-out wheel wells, or big steel spikes on your bumpers.

Wow, really? Imagine that!

Cop proceeds to pat me down and pull shit out of my pocket when he saw my work I'd and realized what a fuck up he made. Officer said he assumed the car was stolen cause recently there has been lots of reports as well as the fact I looked too young to be working for such a company.

Needless to say I was super pissed off and my attitude towards the officer turned pretty nasty afterwards.

Weaksauce. An easy mistake to make. If you were one of the guys whose van had been hit, you'd be glad the cop was erring on the side of caution.

I've had similar run-ins... got stopped in a road check once on the Arthur Laing, cops were grilling us as to where we were coming from, where we were going... they were looking for a white or light-colored van that had been involved in a hit-and-run... which incidentally, at first glance matched the van I was driving. When he saw the amount of rust in the damaged areas, he realized it was old damage, explained to us what they were looking for, and let us go on our way. No harm, no foul, and I certainly hope they caught the guy they were after. Why should I be pissed off about it? Until he stopped us and checked us out, he had no way of knowing that we weren't the van he was looking for.

I can understand why you think I was overacting but given that I was in the compound of my work keys hanging out my pocket and while I was searching into my pocket I was telling him I was going to produce my work ID for him to see.

I am pretty damn sure he was making shit up to cover up his fuck up plus I didn't realize "looking too young" was a good reason to accuse someone of theft

So what is this new law really going to accomplish?

I guess, for one thing, that the Bacons will not have any more hidden guns ? They didn't asdk me for my opinion so I'm just guessing.

yeah probably not, as the law steps up gangsters will just get more creative when they hide things.

Most people are flabbergasted when they learn that this panel on my car opens:

Space is just about right for a block of... well, never mind.

I think that act is an attempt to stop people from creating spaces in doors and other nooks and crannies to hide illegal substances (this is BC after all). Don't really see how they'll enforce it though--perhaps it's just intended as a deterrent to any shops who might be paid to do the job?
