I can't speak for where you live, but where I live, the cops are just
itching to write tickets and so forth, it gives them revenue and
brownie points with the boss.

I've even seen cars pulled over for running blue lights instead of
normal headlights ( certainly not HID, because those cost a dang
fortune, and are primarily for off-road use ).

Itching to yank you over and write you up for just about anything you
can think of.

That's probably why it is so QUIET around here. Peaceful. Tranquil.

I don't believe the PD is a bunch of meanies out to ruin anybody's
day, but they -have- improved the quality of life around here by
keeping non roadworthy vehicles off the streets, along with the
drivers that are behind the wheel of them.

Regulations vary from state to state, county to county, so do check
with your own PD before making any assumptions about anything. They
are more than happy to let you know what is OK and what isn't.

Good!

That's a legitimate safety issue, and I'm glad to hear it. I've grown
quite tired of being blinded by a Prelude with "fog lights" that are
bright blue and aimed right at my face so I can't see anything around
it.

Thing that gets me, though, is that all these cars have front fog
lights, but (in the US anyway) no REAR ones. At least those don't tend
to be left on, or used all the damned time. Where people get the idea
that they need front fog lights on any time it gets dark is a mystery
though, under 100M/yards visability put them on, yes, but not before.

I didn't know you lived in new jersey!

I got a ticket a couple years ago....had a daytime running light
burned out on a bright sunny day. Local cop did a 180 in the middle
of the road, pulled me over and wrote a ticket for "improperly
maintained vehicle". The judge tried to fine $120 but I read off the
state statute limitation of $40 and he was forced to agree.

Still, it's nice not seeing any 'improper' vehicles on the road. I go
over to Pennsylvania and I see stuff on the road straight out of Mad
Max.

Some cars sold in the US have rear fogs, and they DO get left on all the
time.

the new *scam* in this town is towing your vehicle, and if you don't
claim it in 14 days, the city *owns* it and auctions it off for
pennies on the dollar. nice, hu?

The towing fee is $180, the daily storage fee is $75. If you're poor
like me, you can't come up with that kind of cash on a moment's
notice, and you LOSE you vehicle. All perfectly legal according to
Mayor Buttface.

BTW, I am disheartened that you had to recite to your judge The Law as
it pertained to your case, chapter and verse regarding the limitation
of punitive damages for the *crime* you committed. I'm thinking he
would have put you down for $40 even though he fined you $120, and
would have pocketed the difference.

The real crooks are the buggers wearing the robes.
