Digging up some old threads. But it happens.
Good words just the same.
Have had the same experience(s) you speak of.
If I was playing the "ass" and got red-lighted I always owned up to it.
They almost seemed relieved that I was not gonna bust their chops about something I was in the wrong about.
A check of my paperwork, word of caution.
We were both on our way again.
If I got red-lighted and honestly did not know why. I was still respectful and cooperative up to what the law requires.
Most times it ended in the same manner.
Once in a while I rolled with a BS safety violation, or speeding ticket. Either could have easily been overlooked.
Think the thing that ticked me off more then anything was the "You know.....I`m really doing you a favor by not hooking your bike and locking you up overnight
Either they knew I had a cracker jack lawyer, knew he had nothing.
Or. Was just having a really bad day himself.
