Dont be like that. There are bad cops for sure, but without cops, society could not handle a public roadway system. Think of it, the only real reason people dont go as fast as there cars can is because cops enforce it. It keeps a lot of people alive. there harsh because they have to be. if they were always nice and let people off with warnings, no one would care if they got puled over.
I have to disagree. There are people who drive fast, even with cops. I would say the majority of people drive over the limit. I do not think most people would drive 100, or even 90 if the limit was removed.Tiersin said:Dont be like that.

Not to say there arn't cops who go to far...
Where I live, most people do drive 90, and some drive 100+.dren said:I do not think most people would drive 100, or even 90 if the limit was removed.
Here we have 5 or 6 lanes on the interstate. Sometimes more. And we have the same "unwritten" rules I guess, but we still get morons driving 60 in the left lanes.dren said:I think a three lane road like the autobahn would work. Drive as fast as you wish. The faster you go, the farther left you should be.
Yeah, I maxed out my Si once too. On the way back from N10 on a LONG stretch of interstate with nobody around. It had to be like 10 miles of nothing but straight. No cars, no cops. It was just asking for it.dren said:And as far as top speeds go in CRXs...I maxed out the speedo in my auto DX.
I second that! (but the part about the ants was pretty funny....)MarkWilliamson said:Yeah, me too.shanghaining said:
I bet REX-203 had wished that jerk cop had pulled over the guy driving his rex.
Yeah, I hope someone driving my rex with mismatched plates, wires hanging out of the dash, no registration, no proof of insurance doesn't get hassled.....yeah, I hate pigs.
(me, rolling eyes....little rolling eyes emoticon is not working..)
The guy deserved to get shot? For speeding? Not sure if I follow your comment...is this cop humor?MarkWilliamson said:double tap...sorry
Given the way the system is set up, I can sorta see why it's neccesary. But, it's a crappy system if buying a car and following the rules results in getting pulled over by the cops. Makes more sense to have temporary state-issued plates that are full-sized (just made of cheap plastic or something) with normal, easy-to-read numbers meant to be mounted in the stock plate location. There's no need to waste your time or mine pulling me over and sending me to court even though I did exactly what I was legally required to do.MarkWilliamson said:Actually, Ryan, it is.
Most states have license plate laws that state something to the effect "you must display a license plate.." blah blah. technically, I could even write you a ticket for it here in Idaho. Now, of course, that would be a complete waste of time, as long as it's valid....
thus, I get to pull you over and check to see if it's valid. See, I can't see those little numbers on the temp registration....
Besides, Imagine this scenario:
I rip off your CRX.
I yank the plates off and stick on a temporary registration in the rear window.
Wouldn't you like it if I got pulled over by some pig "just to check?"
Also, I will almost ALWAYS write a no proof of insurqance ticket. If you've got insurance, it's a hassle to go to the court and get it dismissed, but if you don't, then I think you deserve that license suspension for driving around uninsured.
