    I think it's the arrogance that is so prevalent in those with psychopathic and sociopathic behaviors.

    It never ceases to amaze me how even the most sophisticated and meticulous criminals don't have enough sense to fix a broken tail light or properly signal a lane change.

    Also, interdiction on the highways can catch the realest of the “real” criminals too. Terrorist Timothy McVeigh was caught by a state trooper on a traffic violation shortly after the Murrah Federal Building bombing, and a former interdiction cop who trained me years ago stopped a man who was later identified as a serial killer (and had the corpse of a victim in his trunk).
    Ted Bundy was also caught on a traffic stop shortly after killing a 12 yr old

    Is your friend a doper? Because it's usually dopers who tell us we should be going after "real criminals"...
