Some troopers are Di(k$, even to other cops! Others are cool and go out of their way to help you. With the surcharge on the license, I might have towed the bike, if it wasn't just 100 yrds to your destination. See, most of you don't realize that if that trooper had cut you a break, violated his department policies, violated the law and let you drive away, he assumes full responsibilites for your actions from then on. If you got into a wreck and died, or killed another person the trooper could have been civilly and criminaly liable. He did have a reason to be a di(k for towing the bike but, he could have been reasonable about it. I'm suprised the wrecker driver passed up $200 cash on the spot.

As for pretty women, in my town, you get ticketed first. You always get over on the system cuz sum hard up di(k likes boobies. I will cite a pretty woman before a guy but, the guy has to have a funny excuse, good excuse or an unusual excuse that I have not heard before. I am the exception, not the norm, unfortunately!

a while back ago we were cruising the back road in Liverpool with .. htown .. omega and me... when we got pulled over by a liverpool cop .. i was speeding, actually everyone was... empty road .. no one to be seen for a while.. anyways told him we were cruising and getting some fresh air away from the city .. asked him for some good scenic routes..and we started chit chatting about how his wife made him sell his bike etc.. anyways.. he gave us a warning and let us go...

not all are bad...

once got pulled over after Jimmy's sunday morning ride bye a trooper.. cop clocked me at 70 on a 60 zone.. and had to give me a ticket cuz .. they heard on the radio of ppl speeding back on the country roads that morning... bummer.

Now i don't speed just cruise... saving the speed for the track..

2. my tags are out.
3. i have no muffler
4. i DID get my inspection recently
5. i DO have insurance on the bike.
6. i have no speedo on the bike due to car backin over it in parking lot a while back...converting a working headlight meant lossing SOMETHING usefull.

i then let them know. no excuses, but this is my reason for such. i lost my job 6 months ago. wife left at the same time. i just picked up work last week. i get paid this friday comming up. told them all i have is a dead empty house, no water/lights..gas. my clothes and my back is all i have. wife has everything else. yes i am behind, but i am working on "it"....but i have no issues or arguments for you needing to do "your job"..

i got away with a WARNING...

thing is i have been getting pulled over EVERY WEEK for the past 2 months by DPS, HPD, SHERRIFF....all WARNINGS

+1000 I recently was talking to a relative of mine that happens to be a retired LEO Captain. He told me that any cop that is worth his salt will take into consideration what hardship writing a ticket would cause. For instance, he said that if he pulled over a college student and they were polite then he would most likely give them a warning because college kids don't have a lot of money to begin with and writing a ticket would just further their financial burden. I am sure that not all LEO's think this way, but I sure wish they did.

It's good there are cops that think this way but, it's sad that the system will work you over when you have no money.
As mentioned before, a person misses an insurance payment cause they have no money and the state makes them pay even more.

Not true. I've never gotten pulled over that I wasn't ticketed.

Now I just don't get pulled over- been 15 years now. My cloaking device is in full working order! I never leave home without it.

Why? That seems sexist. What if I have a funny story or a good joke? Being a girl has never gotten me anything. Why do men think this?

See? Cops are ; or, at least, you are.

Well, thats what I had to do.
What?

If you are talking about the point surcharge. It only with 6 or more points, and its $100 (plus an additional $25 for every point above 6) paid annually until there are less than 6 points on your record. (Points last 3 years)

Quote:
Points surcharge
DPS will assess a surcharge when the driver accumulates a total of six points or more on their record during a three-year period. The surcharge assessment will be reviewed annually. If driver record continues to reflect six or more points during the prior three-year period, the surcharge will be assessed. Therefore, drivers may be required to pay for one or more years if six or more points continue to accumulate on the driver record. The driver is required to pay a $100 surcharge for the first six points and $25 for each additional point. Point surcharges are cumulative and may vary with each annual assessment if convictions are added or removed from the driver record.

Annual surcharge for certain convictions
Drivers who receive a conviction for any of the following offenses that occur on or after September 1, 2003 are required to pay an annual surcharge for three years from the date of conviction.

* Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), or a DWI-related offense
o First Conviction - $1,000 annual surcharge
o Second or subsequent Conviction - $1,500 annual surcharge
o DWI with Blood Alcohol Content .16 or greater - $2,000 annual surcharge
* Failure to Maintain Financial Responsibility
o $250 annual surcharge
* Driving While License Invalid
o $250 annual surcharge
* Driving without a Valid License (i.e.; No Driver License, No Commercial Driver License, No Endorsement Violation, No Motorcycle License, Operate with License for other Class Vehicle).
o $100 annual surcharge

Surcharges, which are cumulative, are automatically assessed for these convictions and do not accrue points. Therefore, an initial conviction for DWI will be assessed $1000 annually, and a subsequent DWI conviction within the same three-year period will be assessed an additional $1500 annually.

All surcharges assessed for this program are in addition to all other reinstatement fees required for other administrative actions and do not replace any administrative suspension, revocation, disqualification or cancellation action that results from these same convictions.

Any cop that makes a general assumption about any group of people based on , age, race, color, religion, ect and decides that XXXXX group is getting a ticket no matter what is discriminatory in my book and should have their peace officers license revoked.

Every situation is different, a good cop knows and understands this and takes full account of everything before just dishing out tickets for minor traffic violations.

That was my middle name years ago. I still love the sound of it. Sexist? yeah probably. But, to a male cop, lots of women, not all, will try anything from flirting to doing more to get out of a ticket. Yes, if they have a funny story or it's a one up from one of the better stories I let them go.
I worked the STEP wave program for this holiday. I wrote a warning for a family who was going to see their brother off to the war in Iraq. I'm not all bad, I do have a compasionae side, sometimes!

My experience has been the cop trying to get the woman to do it.

Maybe that's why I used to get so many tickets.

I went up to conroe sunday & monday, there were troopers *everywhere*, posted up all over 105, from sams boat to i-45 i saw 2 cops pull over people and 3 troopers with people already pulled over... made me feel a little better about moving away.

on the same note i didnt see any on 2854 on the way up there though. they just like hammering 105. and of course the obligatory lightshow in the woodlands on 45..
