    I saw a great bumper sticker the other day. It was in the window of a car. It said "SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL POLICE". The underneath it, in smaller leter, it said, "Officer, will this get me out of a ticket?" lol
    I think we all feel pretty stupid when we get a ticket, ppdgirlbm79. Many of us rationalize but bottomline is...we get tickets when we commit infractions. You went through a red light. If you had hit someone, would you rationalize then?
    Suck it up....and stop for yellow lights...red lights too. [Wink]

      were you being serious, because if that's the case, that's probably why I don't get pulled over. just kidding. I always wonder about that though.

        someone runs a red light. smashes into the car your wife or kid is driving. your wife or kid is DEAD as a result.

        how's that for the power hungry cop who gave the ******* the ticket??

        someone runs a red light or a stop sign they ought to get the frikkin' rodney king treatment in my book!!

          ok this is turning into something that I didn't plan on. I was not driving, therefore i did not get a ticket.
          Thanks for all of your input, but the main reason for this forum was pretty much asking where or how does an officer draw the line on giving a ticket or a warning. take the whole running a red light thing and look at everything in general instead. i know running a red light is wrong, I was not driving, and like I had said, yes I did it in the past, but that is just that the past, I am talking like couple years ago, since I have put my head in the direction of law enforcement.
          IT was a stupid choice to run the red light, doesn't make the person an *******. and I don't think anyone deserves to be beaten, no matter what the case. can you say I need to take a domestic violence class? yeah, pretty sure you do.

              Running a redlight doesn't make you an *******. It does indicate that you may need to be a little more careful with your driving.(Like you seem to be doing. Maybe your friend needs to make the same effort) Sometimes a good reminder is a small donation to the state. Or the Commonwealth in my case.

              Red lights are my pet peeve. I may give you a warning for speeding but I almost always give a ticket for a red light violation. Unless there are other circumstances involved. Like wet, snow covered, or icy roads. My reasons are that the few time where I have almost been involved in a serious accident, were when someone ran a light and almost hit me. It may not be a conscious decision to run the light but it is dangerous.

              My other pet peeve is when the person that committed the violaton tells me that I have to give them a warning.

              Oh really! Let's find out.

                You are corect that running a red light doen't make one an *******, and I don't think you will find any cops on this board who will agree with beating someone for a traffic infraction.

                  I ditto Nite's post. If everyone disregarded/didn't take traffic lights seriously, then traffic would be a mess. It's too bad you got caught...maybe next time you'll stop when you see yellow.

                  As for tickets vs. warnings...

                  Buxom blonde babe=ticket
                  Ugly zit faced fatso=warning

                  At least from my husband's standpoint. Let's give one to the ugly folks for a change!!!

                      If you give the babes with the "cross your heart" seatbelts tickets, you get to see them again in court.  - As for right light violations, I have probably given fewer than five warnings in 16 years.

                        High on my list of mandatory tickets is Running a Red Light. Its right up there with Speeding in a School Zone and Passing a School Bus Loading or Unloading.

                        In my humble opinion, there is absolutley no reasonable excuse to run a Red Light. Every signal light intersection I have seen has a yellow light. The yellow light is a warning light to stop, not speed up.

                        But then I'm a traffic cop; therefore, I'm slightly biased about ticket writing.

                          Yeah, most traffic cops I know never met a ticket they didn't like.

                          As for the girls pushin' up their boobies to get out of a ticket....it's nice to look at but it doesn't work on me. In fact the last one that tried it got a fist full of pink paper and her car towed on top of it. She was ****ed! I guess good looking girls are used to getting what they want. Now I get my revenge on all those girls that wouldn't give me a second look in high school...and college...and last week at the club. HAHAHAHAHA! But I'm not bitter.

                            I wonder where I went wrong? When I was a single cop, the good looking ones with the beautiful boobs seems to not deserve a ticket, just a warning!
