The Grapevine police have to be the worst in Texas. I just moved here from Waco about 1 month ago and I have already been pulled over 3 times in 1 month. Illegal window tint, illegal parking, expired inspection sticker. The expired inspection sticker was thrown out. The illegal window tint could have been thrown out but it would have been at least a three hour wait to see the judge, or thats what they told me. The day I paid the illegal window tint ticket, when I walked out of the court house, my car was being written up for illegal parking. A $58 dollar fine. I lived in Waco for 25 years and got pulled over 3 times. Here in Grapevine its horrible. I've filed a complaint twice even though I knew nothing would take place after I submitted the complaints. But, I've broken my lease at my apartment and I'am leaving and moving to Los Colinas at the end of this month. My brother and ex girlfriend live there and they have had no problems with the Irving/Los Colinas authorities. I hate this city!!!!!!

Personally, I've never been pulled over by a Grapevine cop in a car. I've almost been run over by them on the biking trails, me on a bike with kid in tow, they're on ATVs. I've been harrassed while putting around on a golf cart near the lake in our neighborhood while construction trucks are driving 50+ down Kimball (30 mph). I've had $15k of the wife's jewelry stolen out of my house while we were at work (door knocked down). No leads, but they are there in full force if my neighbor's son starts his minibike. Don't even get me started with the Flowermound lake patrol...

I was glad I didnt tell the whole story, because I was waiting on a response like yours.

1. My inspection sticker expired in July. I was pulled over July 29 because of an expired inspetion sticker? I thought you get the whole month to get your car inspected.
How is this breaking the law?

2. I was pulled over by the same officer 2 weeks later because of illegal window tint, I was in the same CAR!!! When I bout my car from Sewell Lexus, the Window tint was already on the CAR!!
How is this breaking the law?

As for you, GRAPVINE DRIVER, you are either a pig, a city official, a redneck, or a hick. If you agree with what this cop did:

YOU HAVE A PROBLEM!!!!

Well, I am not a pig, city official, a redneck, or a hick. Just a professional that drives on the average 70 miles per day to and from work for the last ten years and have never been stopped for anything. You can fight the inspection sticker but I don't believe you got a ticket the same month it was expiring, unless it was from a different state.(Which is illegal, I got a ticket 25 years ago for having a Colorado inspection sticker with an OK tag.) Illegal parking! Come on! Only an idiot or someone who is extremely lazy parks illegally!

You said it yourself - illegal parking, expired sticker, illegal window tint - what don't you get? If you don't appreciate a community where the law is enforced then you are doing the right thing by moving on. bye-bye

I have to somewhat agree. My ex girlfriends step mother worked as an administrator for the police department in Grapevine. She even told me that the police department targeted highschool students hanging around the theater in Grapevine Mills Mall. When a college buddy of mine (who is black) came a spent a weekend over my parents house, the police came over and told my parents that my buddy fit the description of someone who has been vandalising some vehicles in the neigborhood. We where outside playing basketball when this happened. My father was like "This guy lives two time zones away from here" My father filed a complaint with the city but nothing happened. I liked growing up in Grapeveine. But this city is majority white. I could see how other races would feel uncomfortable in Grapevine. I here how some people of my race talk around the city. A lot of conservatives and traditional values in Grapevine. SOUTHERN VALUES. hint, hint..

Ha! This is too funny. You're just bummed that the police in trophy club caught on to you. I agree, move on, buddy. Move on. SEE YA!!! I assume you bought a used car at the Lexus dealership... it was probably illegally tinted form the first guy who bought it, meaning Lexus has nothing to do with it. Am I right? I so am. And you didnt want to stay and fight it, but yet you have the time and energy to get on here to start a thread and complain, then check back while "waiting on a response."
Complaners like you are laughable. Just want somebody to commiserate with their ignorant pissed offedness.

Look out, Las Colinas!

What are threads for Keller Mom? For people to respond to them. Dkels has a legit beef with the police dept. I'm not a psychic but Iam 100% sure youre white and Dkels is black. Look, Im white and I've seen from my own eyes the racial profiling in Grapevine. I've heard the stories from friends that I went to High School with and we all know the story. Black guy moves to new town in a luxury car; Police want to get to know him. Lets not be stupid. As far as the Window tint ticket, it is the Dealerships fault. You cant sell a car with illegal anything on it. Do you know the Window tint laws Keller Mom? The car dealership SHOULD. I dont walk into a car dealership and ask the Dealer " Hey whats the window Tint Law?" I'd assume the tint was legal They should've replaced the tint before they sold it. THIS WAS A LEXUS DEALRSHIP!! Keller Mom you sound like Ann Coulter. You are probably a Fox News junky!!

This week I've seen a cop car sitting on the sholder of entrance ramp to South 121/360 from William D. Tate at 4:30am when I'm going to work. No lights, just sitting there waiting for those pesky criminals heading to work at 4:30am. He was giving someone a ticket this morning even though there's almost no one on the road. Seems to me it doesn't matter if you are black, white, mexican, chinese, or what ever, they're equal opportunity vultures preying on those who pay their salary. Protect and serve?
