I asked him why would he do that?

and he said "because I can"

he was literally just trying to make my life miserable, because it was fun for him. Not once did I ever give him an ounce if disrespect, from the moment he pulled me over, to the minute I left the court room.

another insident when I had my N, being young and cool, I "cut out" my N so it was black. Got pulled over and the cop said if I couldnt call one of my friends to bring me a real N sign in the next 10 minutes, he was towing my car.

how in the fucking hell is that not trying to make good peoples lives hell? again I never even gave the cop so much as a bad look, I spoke politely and gave the utmost respect.

or how about the cop who gave me a V.I for having a lowered car? when in fact my fucking car wasnt even lowered, it just had 17's on it with 50 big tires.

this same cop pulls me over the next week and tries to V.I me AGAIN for the same thing, even after I showed him the fucking inspection papers.

say what you will, I have no respect for them, because I have yet to meet ONE that has shown me respect.

well actually there was one traffic cop lady in chilliwack who pulled me over and was the nicest person ever, but that was one out of like 10?

and yes, if I was in an argument with a cop, on the street, sure I would call him a pig, why not? whats he gonna do?

as long as theres no way for him to give me any tickets out of spite.
So other than that one instance of being innocent, did you actually do an illegal u-turn? We know you cut out the N and the officer has every right to do what he said would do in that case.

I'm curious how the hearing went for you dispute for the u-turn. I presume you'll come back on here saying you won but I would've liked to hear everything said in court.

^ its not the point of wether or not they have the right to do it, its the point that they are complete assholes.

ofcourse he had the right to tow my car, but he could have just said, go straight home and put on a normal one.

and its has nothing to do with the actual U-turn ticket, its the fact that he was pist off that day and said he would try and take my lisence.

why go the extra mile to ruin my day? why not just give me the ticket and leave?

Dood keep that fucking attitude over on VCC where people tolerate it. I would love to give you points for this but it's not my section. Perhaps you should do some research into where the term "pig" actually comes from in reference to police. Then you'll actually know why it's demeaning and then perhaps you won't throw the term around so casually.

I'm no police nuthugger by any means but show some fucking respect on these forums.

Berz out.

If you were doing nothing wrong... nothing wrong would be done.

On topic though sorry for multi posting... rather than flashing high beams, what if you simply turn your headlights on and off (in daytime driving conditions) rather than flashing high beams. Is there a violation for turning your headlights off and on?

Berz out.

The officer demanded you plead quilty, because if you didn't your proving that you don't realize you've done anything wrong and therefore you shouldn't have a license.

If the officer let you go odds are you wouldn't have replaced the N, they wanted to see you put a proper one on your car before leaving the scene.

The officers didn't need to give you the opportunity to plead guilty or get a replacement N, that's what your not realizing. They were giving you opportunities to redeem yourself.

As for the tow, you were illegally operating your motor vehicle then.

If you read the back of your license, it has your restrictions. If one of the is the have a FULLY INTACT ICBC N, then you need to have that. Otherwise, you're driving contrary to restrictions. Not only that, if you got into an accident, ICBC could totally void your insurance.

Him giving you the 10 mins is already giving you a break. Who knows what would have happened "on the drive home". As much as we would like to believe accidents won't happen to us, it is when we least expect it that it happens.

And you better think twice who the assholes or the guys who'll eff up your week are. ICBC or the cops. I'm better on ICBC.

I've ran into my share as well. They were not pleasant. Some were also confrontational.
I wouldn't go as far as calling them "pigs". But I HAVE lost a lot of respect for some of them.

IMO it's just one of the many flaws of our society that cause people to stop using their brains and do whatever is written down for them. I'd like for someone at ICBC/RCMP to look me straight in the eye and tell me that if Glove had a proper N sign accidents could have been avoided. In fact I'd also like for someone to look me straight in the eye and say that his N sign would obstruct traffic less than being pulled over waiting for a tow truck and having the car towed across town. Sure bureaucracy and legislation levels the playing field for some of the idiots I've seen driving around in a police cruiser and many other components of society, but these half-wits need to realize that just because you can doesn't make it right. I'm glad to see a drunk driver or an excessive speeder having their car impounded but some of these chicken-shit rights should not belong in the hands of certain idiots.

You will be hard pressed to find empirical research that proves speeding tickets reduces recidivism, the driver will probably avoid speeding in that one spot from then on but chances are he'll probably go on speeding through the rest of the highway by the next day.

Since speed traps are always and only set up in high crash locations, my headlight flashing is simply to warn oncoming drivers of an increased crash risk at that location.

Saving them a speeding ticket is just secondary

This won't do much on most cars that use the low beam as DRLs.

Fogs lights on/off is a much better choice, for cars with fog lights obviously

Yeh, probably not the best idea to be lifting your parking brake while driving.
