To make a long story short I contested a ticket in traffic court for driving over the center line. The cop (all 5'2 110 lbs of her) gave me this ticket without seeing the infraction. A guy tried to pass me one the right on a two lane road through an entrance to a shopping center. Contact was made from my front right bumper to his rear left quarter panel. The cop (all 5'2 110 lbs of her ) claimed I had to be over the center line for this to happen, never took any measurements and made me move my truck as soon as she got there.In court she (all 5'2 110 lbs of her )told the judge that the truck was already moved out of the road when she got there and she measured the road at 14' wide. I contested these points and the judge never even looked up at me the two of them exchanged this information like they were talking by themselves. I told the judge that I was trying to make a wide right turn to avoid some bad pavement on the entrance, he told me if I have a problem with the streets to contact the street dept. I lost, paid the fine and left the courthouse pissed off!!!
I will never again give a statement or admit to anything other than being at the seen of any accident to a cop EVER again. "Talk to my lawyer" will be my words. I got shot at one time in my service truck, went to the police in the same city and they wouldn't even make a report out or go out to the scene. Left a hole in my truck two feet back of the drivers side window. Got my truck broken into in my driveway and they could have cared less. Had a guy threaten to shot me in the head at a gas station because he thought I cut him off, no reaction. None of these things generate money for the city but shot gunning tickets does. It just SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm going to get my conceal carry permit and a couple bad ass dogs and start taking care of myself because the people I thought were there to " protect and serve" don't care
