He was probably just under pressure to hit his quota

"Quotas" in ****ing police work is one of the most backwards ass things in the entire universe. They WANT people to be breaking the law

I think I heard that there were studies done that suggested talking on the phone while driving is just as dangerous as texting... You don't even have to look at the screen. Even if you are using bluetooth it's the distraction that makes it dangerous apparently.

Sounds like bull**** to me but that's just what I heard. Last time I got pulled over I had no licence or anything plus I was buzzed and they just let me go with a warning lol. I love being white.

The cop said that I needed to be driving "hands free," so if I were using bluetooth or speaker phone I would have been fine apparently. I'd be interested in seeing those studies but it's still absurd to me, the first offense for someone that wasn't even looking at their phone should be just a warning in 100% of cases as far as I'm concerned

No but I definitely made sure that I sounded pissed off when he was finished up. I should have yelled ACAB at him

Like I said it sounds like bull**** to me but I remember hearing that on some podcast or something.. can't remember where. Doesn't make sense to me cause presumably then having a passenger in the car that you are talking to should be just as dangerous.

But the law is by nature arbitrary and gay. There are tons of red lights around here I would run when I was driving cause the town is set up so stupid and I'm not waiting on a ****ing light when it's the middle of the night and nobody is even around. There's nothing dangerous about it. But ifI got caught I'd get ticketed nonetheless.

The civic engineers just did a piss poor job... Tons of red lights that should either be stop signs or convert to blinking orange/red at night when there's no traffic but apparently that's too complicated for these hicks to work out.

You're a bit young to be sucked into the old boys network already, alas
I hope you'll get off with a warning though, my hatred of the patriarchy is at war with my hatred for cops here
