So true, I know some cops that are like Brakejob in the city , who basically only stop someone if they are doing something really stupid and deserved to be stopped. When you get into the suburbs is when you get looked at and asked questions " what are you doing here" like you don't have the right to walk on their streets ( South Plainfield New Jersey )

depends on lots... who stopped first, which car looks crappier (for me, b/c i want to get more like drugs, etc...)... etc...

Actually I'd try for both... i've pulled two cars over at once before...

edit: but 80 in a 55 with little traffic is not going to get my attention unless one car is a crap box

no, not with my agency or any agency I know of. seriously, there isn't.

Not to say you can just *never* write a ticket, you have to do some enforcement... but it's not like a quota, just "why have you not managed to write at least one ticket this week?"

I tried for one ticket a day... maybe pull 15 cars over, ticket one. Whoever was disrespectful or just deserved the ticket... most pullovers are either for stupid things (nice rolling stop, please be safer) or for cars where I want to find drugs or whatnot. the one idiot getting the ticket might leave his radio on, hassle me for pulling him over, etc... or just have a dumbass violation like running a red light...

one more question....
i had an exhaust put on my integra at one point.... not loud at all... the tip was just shiney... i told the officer when he pulled me over that it was well below the DB limit... he still wrote me a ticket....
is there a double standard to this like the tinting laws??? as in "it is illegal to have any type of modification done to the exhaust"???


thanks for the answer on the quota question... wish there were more cops like you down here... i always shake their hand even if i get a ticket.... dont know why i do.. i just do

NYPD has a certain number of tickets they have to give out. They do not call it a quota, it is a performance goal. If they do not meet it month after month they face disciplinary action.

They have to write a certain number of Parkers, Movers and Criminal Summons' a month FYI

This I know for a fact.

Sorry brakejob, i know this is your thread so I will Shush for now

Why is it not a law for officers to wear bullet proof vests while on duty? Especially undercover duty.

Don't you think a vest might be a bit of a tip-off??

hypothetically if someone were to get stopped by a cop and given a jay walking ticket and they gave the cop wrong personal info would they be off the hook?

And what would a cop do if you refuse to sign a ticket?

This DUI talk has got me wondering... Is someone allowed to become a cop if they have a DUI? I've heard multiple things. I've heard if you get an "under 21" DUI, you can still become a cop. But if it's an "over 21" DUI, you can't.

I've always heard different things, but just wondering which is correct.

Anyone know? Thanks..

What seperates a "corrupt cop" from a "friendly cop." For example, I have a friend who knows a cop who is a coke dealer(I assume that is a corrupt cop), and then I have a friend who was pulled over for speeding without a licence or a licensed adult in the car(never got one, underage) and since the cop new his brother(a troublemaker) he was just advised to slow down. In addition, I have a friend who was pulled over when she was on her learners permit, at 1 AM, with friends in the car, and started crying and the cop let her off(Boston)... Do you draw the line with friendliness at some point...

Also, I have been on the highway before in the left lane where all the cars in sight are doing at least 85, do some cops pull random people out and over for that? Is "I was going with the flow of traffic" a reasonable response that would hold up in court against a ticket(for the 85 limit, though in FL on vacation my dad was going 95 and still getting passed).

Ha, I had that happen once in high school when I was pulled over for speeding. I gave the officer my license, he looked at it for a minute, sighed, & handed it back to me. "Oh, you're "Sam's" sister aren't you? Don't be like your brother." He let me go.

happened to me a couple of times as well. dad used to work for the city before he retired. i got pulled over for 55 in a 25, the cop says "your dad will kick both of our asses if i write you this ticket, so just take it easy son". it's good to know people

...Yawn good morning everyone, time to answer the questions... I will answer anything here, sorry if i take too long..


the vehicle code for loud exhaust states:
27150. (a) Every motor vehicle subject to registration shall at all
times be equipped with an adequate muffler in constant operation and
properly maintained to prevent any excessive or unusual noise, and
no muffler or exhaust system shall be equipped with a cutout, bypass,
or similar device.
(b) Except as provided in Division 16.5 (commencing with Section
38000) with respect to off-highway motor vehicles subject to
identification, every passenger vehicle operated off the highways
shall at all times be equipped with an adequate muffler in constant
operation and properly maintained so as to meet the requirements of
Article 2.5 (commencing with Section 27200), and no muffler or
exhaust system shall be equipped with a cutout, bypass, or similar
device.
27200 governs the noise level:
27200. (a) The Department of Motor Vehicles shall not register on a
dealer's report of sale a new motor vehicle, except an off-highway
motor vehicle subject to identification as provided in Division 16.5
(commencing with Section 38000), which produces a maximum noise
exceeding the applicable noise limit at a distance of 50 feet from
the centerline of travel under test procedures established by the
Department of the California Highway Patrol.
and
27206. For the purposes of Section 27200, the following noise
limits shall apply to any other motor vehicle, not specified in this
article, manufactured:


(1) After 1967, and before 1973 .............................
86 dbA
(2) After 1972, and before 1975 .............................
84 dbA
(3) After 1974 ..............................................
80 dbA
now, the police don't have to use anything to measure the sound, it's at our discretion. but you can take it to a smog station or other testing place to have it tested and see if it's actually in compliance.
