    What numbers are you referring to? The inches or distance from the fenderwell? If so, you may be incorrect as the flap must cover the outer rim of the tire. If not, I can cite. Interesting that a Deputy cited you and you took it to the local CHP office for sign off, then didn't get what you wanted and went to your friend who signed it off. I hope for his sake that the sign off was inspected and did pass the VC, otherwise he could be in trouble. You even stated that you "deserved it".

    Why did you play one off the other? Just curious. Not a good way to get your name out there.

    Why did everyone automaticaly assume the CHP Officer was in the wrong? How many times have you all said that there are two sides to the story? We only have the OP version, and you have all stated that the CHP Officer is lazy, burned out, wrong, etc.

    Wow. Just wow...

    1st of all, I cant believe you got a ticket to begin with...being a recent grad and all...BUT you are not yet hired, so it could go either way.
    2ndly..YES, you offended him, hence his response..but thats ok...you were right and had the proof to back it up...thats what a cop does.

    Anyway, he is old and tired and found a place to "sleep", so to speak and yes..his way was the way a while back and thats all he knows, BUT to argue with a current book stating otherwise is just stubborn and stupid...he was embarrassed and could nto admit it..probably good he is inspecting vehicles and not on the road.

    Good job, let it go as a life experience and good luck in the future. Get a job quick so you'll stop getting BS citations

    Heh...you should've replied, "it seems you haven't studied enough" and then ducked for cover

    When you're right you're right, and when you're wrong you're wrong. You were right, nothing to feel awkward about.

    Assuming that you were right and the officer was wrong, it is called "Contempt of Cop". Some guys get their feelings hurt anytime a citizen challenges thier authority. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Until he ends up being on the Oral board or your BI! Why did you even bring it up to him that you "grad" a Police Academy? What was the point there?

    Youll understand one day.

    Everyone in this job has gone off on a person that they shouldnt have gone off on.

    It happens, to many variables to assume anything.

    You got your ticket fixed, be happy, and get used to it. Co workers are sometimes a holes, deal with it.

    If you are LEO, did the citing officer know this and STILL wrote you??
    I'm not LEO yet, I have completed backgrounds with three agencies and would have a job right now but for some budgeting snafus.
    The officer who cited me knew I was recently out of the academy and thats why he gave me a fix it ticket and not a cite. I fully accept that I was in the wrong on that. The chp asked if I was in an academy and after confirming I was, he told me not to lecture him about the "bible" he has spent his entire career studying. At the time I shrugged it off as more of a nuisance in the process of getting the fix it ticket cleared up.

    My friend who signed it off looked at my truck and was flabbergasted that I had been cited in the first place, but I live up in the mountains and fully understand why a leo would be concerned about the mud flap issue. I have written it off as "male pms"

    Do you realize how many officers I've offended in my career? More than I can count.

    We are brothers, but brothers fight... so don't worry, it'll be fine.

    Nope, you won. Nothing wrong about bringing something to someones attention when you know that they are mistaken.

    Nope, not at all. If I wasn't sure on an offense, or it changed without my notice, as much as it is embarassing, I'd say I appreciate it and go on... Some cops are just embarassed to say or have a pride issue to say, "I apologize."
