I see this kinda crap all the time and I couldn't agree more. Speed limits are established in order to make the highways safe for all that travel it. If your gonna travel 20 mph over the limit, turn your damn lights on. That's the reason they were put there. If I travel 20 over I get slapped with a ticket to the tune of about $200 by some prick looking down his nose at me thinking the laws don't apply to him. Most don't act this way but the few that do make me want to throw up. Overinflated egos will not get you respect from the public

All the officers in the area do not believe theae type of laws apply to them. I witness them speeeding all the time. What a great idea to start posting unit number speed and time of infraction.

We only speed when we are off duty. We obey the speed limits when responding to your emergency calls. Hopefully the problem will be gone by the time we get there.

Two of the new county cars one black and one white do NOT have any unit numbers. Why would the sheriff fail to put unit numbers on these cars.

These cops are ridiculous. I have a court date next week for a ticket I got in which I was charged with avoiding an intersection by driving through a parking lot. There were 4 of us and that cop made us all sit on the curb whilst he searched the vehicle. There were unopened bottles of vodka and some beer, but we were all legal. No search warrant. I'm hoping the cop doesn't appear because I don't need more points on my license.

Can't search your vehicle without your permission or probable cause. Of course if you refuse search, Barney Fife can be ahole.

Why did you let him search your car. If he could not smell alcohol on the driver he did not have probable cause for a search. He could have held you until a K-9 unit arrived to smell for drugs. If the dog hit on the car then they could search. Next time just tell them to F-off.

I have a court date next week to share that with the judge. Actually, they can reach in the vehicle at arms length and search. There wasn't any probable cause except they thought we had open containers and were underage. We didn't and we aren't. They made us all exit the vehicle and sit on the curb.

The whole incident was because I cut through a parking lot to avoid heavy traffic and a traffic light. I'm only interested in getting the points taken off my record.

Steve Adams from the El Dorado Police Department does this on a daily basis going to work from Pleasant Grove Rd on to Iron Mountain Rd, then on to 167.Every day when he gets behind me I'm going 55 to 60 and he passes me and goes over 60. I'm sorry but I know you are not late if you everyday. So why does he keep doing this. He speeds going to work and off from work

Sounds like unlawful detainment.
Anyone think to whip out their smartphone and record the stop?

Yes. Then if I do not commit anymore traffic violations the points come off in 2 years. I think the points are removed after 2 years anyhow. I wasn't in my home state. I was vacationing on the eastern shore of MD.

No. We weren't reaching for anything. LOL. More than one police car ended up on the scene. They have dash cams that record traffic stops. I didn't know it was illegal to cut through a parking lot to avoid a red light.:(

The problem is that I have a couple speeding tickets and now another moving violation.

That's your fault. It has been forever in every state that I know of.

I have a court date coming up next week. I have counsel that is pro bono, hired by the attorney I am interning for, to dispute the illegal search the cops perpetrated on me. My boss thinks the charges will be dropped because of this. I just hope I don't get a speeding ticket driving back to MD. LoL.
