Cops are sometimes checking on Boundary right before Kingsway, they hide in this little alley right before Kingsway, in the afternoon around 4 - they are not discreet about it either.

As well, sometimes at the bottom of the hill right before Vaness too, in the morning around 750-8am.

Watch out speeders and texters when cruising on Boundary!

Delete call log when he goes back to his car.. problem officer?

Cops are always at Lougheed Hwy and Willingdon. They park their cars on the median behind the Skytrain pillars. Long line ups there, so busting people for not wearing seatbelts and using their cellphones is pretty easy.

The pillars are pretty wide, so a squad car can hide there easily. I can tell when the cops are there, 'cause the panhandlers that are there all the time are nowhere to be seen.

government is poor, they need extra source of revenue so therefore giving texters and ppl who don't wear seat belt tickets, instead of all this, they should fight real crime

I drive down Lougheed everyday, and I see them at least once or twice a week.

So do these cops actually have squad cars up ahead, prepared to chase, if the drivers suddenly drive off?

MR2 with no plates in the back??


Surprisingly... I don't think I've ever seen these seatbelt/texting checks before.

I don't know how people drive without a seatbelt. It feels so unsecure to me, just feels wrong. When I get into my car, my natural impulse is to put my seatbelt on, even if I haven't started my car yet.

its usually the older guys, back in the day it was an optional thing.
And I wouldnt have a problem with the phone thing, but if I see a cop doing it why shouldnt I be allowed to do it, just because they got a badge does it mean they could do what they want?

i dont text when the vehicle is moving. personally it doesn't distract me at a red light to fire off a quick text and if i can't get it off before the light changes, i'll literally drop my phone and i'm back to paying attention to the road.

most of the time, i'll hide my phone in the dash so i'll look like i'm looking ahead. i'm sure this only works with the dashboards that have a bigger cave.

One of my best friends is a brown guy, and he told me that a lot of brown people don't wear seat belts (I don't know how true that is... might just be his family), but when I first met him, he used to never wear one. I always slam on the brakes in the parking lot whenever I first start the car to do a seat belt check. He learned pretty quickly and now wears one all the time.
