andrew thanks for all the clarifications. i know it isn't the officers that create the policies and most officers don't like having to write tickets all day. You guys are in the game just like us, I am just helping out my team.
Out of curiosity, and because you brought it up, what "team" is that?

By that I meant the generally good hard working citizens that are getting reamed with silly tickets for minor traffic violations on their way home from work.

The job is the job. LEO's issue tickets cause it's their job, I understand. My job is to watch out for those tickets and avoid them.

Call me crazy, but isn't it just a lot easier to just not break the laws?

Just askin'.

So I am guessing you never make any mistakes not matter how small when driving, you always travel under or exactly at the speed limit (speedo calibrated)? Do you make sure you have at least the required distance between you and the next vehicle? signal the distance required by law ahead of any turn merge or exit?

I never said that did I?

Guess what happens when you make a mistake and get caught- you guessed it, still guilty

I know ever since I made a conscious decision years ago to quit acting like a fool on the streets, the occurrences of PD encounters dropped exponentially. Wonder of wonders.

People who get pulled over regularly enough to whine about it can usually find the cause in the mirror.

Maybe you should try reading the thread over again. No one said anything about getting pulled over regularly. We are talking about people simply driving home from work in traffic getting reemed with tickets for minor mistakes. Majority of cops I know wouldn't give tickets on something so silly.

Well let's see! I drive about 24000 miles per year. If I were to drive an average of 45/hr (which is probably the speed of the average Houston driver), it would take me about 533 hours to drive it. If I increase that average speed by 20 miles per hour to 65/hr I make it in 369 hours. So I save 164 hours not being on these miserable Houston highways but instead at home or at work being productive. Now multiply that times the 20 years I've been driving them. 3280 hours not on the freaking freeway. That's 136 days of my life not on the freeway, 410 nights in bed with my wife. In 20 years I've had probably 10 tickets, 3 stupid accidents that weren't my fault and had nothing to do with speeding.

The answer is no, it's not easier to not break the law!

The traffic could be highly improved and made more safe in Houston if a large advertising campaign were made on TV, Radio, newspaper stating that if you drive in the left lane of any major highway and are not passing the traffic to your right you will be pulled over and cited for obstructing traffic. All other traffic should stay in the right 2,3 or 4 lanes and allow people who know how to drive and pay attention to what they are doing go by in the left lane. If this were implemented and enforced to the degree that everyone was afraid to get in the left lane unless passing Houston traffic would improve immediately and accidents would decrees.

No Sir, perhaps you are the one in need of a re-read. I simply asked if it were easier to obey the law other than what you provide; to create a "job" of avoiding the police You're also ASSuming that I am talking about you, maybe a guilty conscience? All I said was that the people who typically and whine are the ones who should look in the mirror for the cause. If that applies to you; so be it. If not, then you shouldn't have to worry about it then, should you?
A mistake is a mistake, doesn't mean that it was a malicious mistake, you have to pay the piper just the same

Agreed, I guess it should be quantified- easier to not break the law so you don't have to deal with getting a ticket or going to court, etc.

Preaching to the choir on this one! Over my past 20+ years of driving on the roads, I can recollect when the signs for the "left lane for passing only" was actually enforced (to some degree in some areas). I also remember a mandate by the Mayor (?) that said 18 wheelers were not allowed in the left lanes in Houston...

C'est la vis.
