    I never knew what to refer to him as after he married my cousin. Let's face it, saying "my cousin's husband" over and over again gets a little annoying. Sometimes I'd get myself too mixed up and start calling him my cousin's wife too. CIL is less confusing. Actually, it was the police officer that pulled me over who called him my CIL so I decided to start using it myself.

    I made an error. It's called A Speeder's Guide to Avoiding Tickets I found it "used" on Amazon.ca for $3. It's regularly $16 Cdn, but the one I got was brand new.

    Yes, I have learned my lesson from that traffic stop. One thing I will point out is that I have been driving like a moron long before my CIL came along. (I haven't even known him for a year yet.) Those of you who accuse me of thinking I can drive like a moron because of him, I'd also like to point out that if anything, my driving has improved since he came along.

    Cst. sb, you're right; I should show my CIL more respect by trying to stay off the radar.

    I feel stupid now.

    Ah, I still think it's true to some extent in my city. Never seen a cop here without mirrored sunglasses and it's something that's even mentioned the book I found on the internet called Speeders' Guide to Avoiding Tickets . Very interesting book written by a retired cop. No where does it mention to not speed.

    Here's some rocket science for ya,,SLOW DOWN. It's not the LEO's fault you're a moron,,he's doing his job. Or, alternatively, you can go on thinking you are so important that there's a conspiracy against you. At it's helm is your beloved mommy who wants you to use your CIL to gain favors from the POlice because YOU act like a moron and break da law.

    That's labeling and you are going to give the traffic cops come here self esteem issues. Heck, they might even stop wearing the mirrored sunglasses!! j/k

    I'm sorry if this offends you, but you are really showing some maturity issues. The police, and trust me when I say this, have better things to do than be power hungry jerks.

    If you live in a small city of a 125,000 people with, "not that many cops" you should NEVER be pulled over, let alone having your car searched for drugs, or have to name drop. And your mother counsels you to name drop? Does she have the odd police interaction as well? You should be showing you CIL more respect by doing your utmost to stay off the radar.

    If and when you apply, and if you make it to the interview stage the member interviewing you is going to have read every police interaction you've ever had. That's means every 911 call, good or bad, every traffic ticket, and every file you've been carded too.

    And there should be no "I'm do for one" with traffic tickets. If you are thinking like that you might need to address your driving habits! The family you kill might be mine!

    Know your car? Knowing you & "your car" results in either a wave or nothing at all unless you...

    Drive like a moron.

    You probably get pulled over a lot becuase you drive too fast. Don't blame the officer for your poor driving.

    Also, in a city with a population of 125K (wouldn't even call that small) it is very easy to find a stop. My metro area only has 75K and there is plenty of cars to stop. So i highly doubt they stop you because they know your car.

    You've used this person's name the two times the opportunity presented itself. He's going to get sick of it...if he isn't already.
    I never used his name once! My mom tells me to, but I won't because I don't think it's right. Is the concept of having someone who is associated with a police officer not want to use his name to get out of tickets an uncommon thing or something? I don't think that it is my place to start tossing names around. The guy that pulled me over just assumed that I thought it was my CIL still behind me, but as I said before I thought that they had both gone straight back onto the highway and slow drivers annoy me. I figured out how he knew who I was anyways. He was the same guy who was standing next to my CIL in line at Tim Hortons while I was talking to my CIL amd my CIL told him who I was after I left.

    Good questions CPD!

    Sounds as if she has driving or "police" issues.

    Whenever I get pulled over for something by the RCMP or someone who knows my CIL. The majority of my pull-overs happen from the city police and not the RCMP. The city police do pull me over for stupid things (ie: Suspicious driving at 2:00 am because I waited to make sure no one was running the red light before I went into the intersection. Because the cop was stopped beside me I was trying to hide something. That got me a car search. I pulled off into a parking lot one night to talk on my cell phone and a police officer started harassing me for loitering in a parking lot. I was accused of following a police officer to a call in my neighbourhood on my way home from work one night.) but nothing results of it. I don't really have the option of using my CIL's name "all the time," maybe once or twice.

    With the exception of getting pulled over that time I only had the option of using his name once. I got pulled over by his friend who's a Highway Transportation Officer who was leading a roadside vehicle safety inspection. My car itself was not very unsafe to drive, but they needed to find something so they could fill their quota of vehicles. What they found was a missing piece of plastic that "eventually over time would cause my vehicle to become unsafe." It ended up costing my dad $400 to get fixed. My mom told me that I should have used my CIL's name to his friend to get away without having to get it fixed.

    I know this may be hard for people to believe, but I DO NOT want to be known as the person who thinks she can get herself out of tickets because her CIL is a Mountie. I don't think that at all. If he wants to give me a ticket that's fine, I probably deserve it then, especially considering he's doesn't like giving out a lot of tickets. The only thing I expect from him is that he spells my name correctly on the ticket. I think that's a reasonable expectation. It's pretty sad when you can't spell your own relatives' names correctly. (I have yet to have a speedind ticket with my name spelled correctly on it. I really don't understand what's so difficult about accurately copying a name off of a licence. I won't even get into what Christmas cards are like.)
