FTP!!!

The prisons and county jails are full of people who turn them selves in or they are traffic violators.

The police do not do anything, ever.....oh, except write tickets.

If it wasnt for tickets, there would be no prison overcrowding...

FTP!!!!!

This is a parking spot can't you tell??? " then he realize that he was wrong and did said that he was sorry that he had a long day.. oh that never felt so good. They always have a attitude when they see a biker.

!!! Sorry about that!!! I agree that there was NO way he can see the plate from the Chevron. What he saw was a sport bike and he assume "most likely he has something wrong!!" and went on pursuit!! Yes I think they can break ALL the laws and get away with that! They are like a "brotherhood" and protect among them selves. I'm probably going to be flamed/banned for telling this!! even if they do something really illegal and wrong like driving DUI or killing someone by accident!! They are ABOVE the Law!! Heck I remember a HPD cop told me once that "HE WAS THE LAW". Nowadays I have setup one of the side buttons on my Blackberry to activate the voice recorder and have everything he says on record (not valid in the Court of Law anyway) but useful for your own notes. Not a good idea to argue with the Cop. Just keep your mouth shout and take it to court.

One think that I really consider was you mistake and you guys are going to laugh about this but I do not care is that YOU ATTRACT WHAT YOU THINK!!, Never ever think something wrong/bad is going to happen to you 'cause it will happen. Just ignore them.

at this precise moment, you attract the !!!

Good luck with the ticket and wish you the best!!!

I would suggest you do get an attorney. He can break the law only if you are trying to run. No other reason. I suggest you file a complaint with your local district police if thats where it happened and I would take this to court and fight it. On principle alone. I have won 3 times by doing this. Yes, there are good cops, but there are a bunch of cops out there to. One other thing, look up the exact law on the plate issue so that you do know what the laws are. I do not know but my plates are high and visible so I would not know. I know some of the custom bikes cannot mount them this way. Find out what the law actually is then take this cop on.

Here it is. Now the question is, can you measure off the distance from your bike at 50' and take a photo of the plate with a zoom lens on your camera. If you can do this and its veiwable then you take this photo to court showing the distance and the plate and you will win in court.

(a) A person commits an offense if the person ATTACHES TO or DISPLAYS ON a motor vehicle a number plate or registration insignia that:

and there is several things under there that you can't attach to the plate. I couldn't find anything with a distance except the license plate light law Transportation Code Sec. 547.322(f)(2):

(1) illuminates the rear license plate; and
(2) makes the plate clearly legible at a distance of 50 ft. from the rear.

Fyi i argues with him after he was already to give me the ticket ... and who the says he is right.. because he has a badge? I dont buy that.

So yes, I pull a lot of bikes over, because its usually pretty productive (arrests and LEGITIMATE tickets).
I knew it! they make themselves easy pickin's

I dont give cops a reason to pull me over, so I am not complaining for my own sake I just find it absolutely pathetic

There you go. It's written.

Friday night after the UH game I tried to steal a green cart, then asked the cop for a ride on his bike. He said no, but he did let me sit on it. It was like a recliner! Then today two m/c cops said hi to me and asked how I was doing. They were really nice. And JDUB has the cutest booty on MH. I cops!
