    Default looka me!!!

    Don't know if anyone was in the area but I got pulled over in the south last night. I was driving by myself when i noticed a cop car behind me. Well not 10 seconds later the lights come on, then another cop car with his lights and siren blaring comes rippin up behind the first car that pulled me over.

    2 young cops bust out of their patrol cars, do a walk around my car, obviously lookin for anything they can ticket me for. One cop looks at my back window and reads my sticker "i know, i know...pull over" and laughs and points it out to the other officer. Well the other cop didn't think it was that funny. He comes up and starts bitching me out about my exhaust tip being to large and shiney....okay. I hand him my licence, insurance, and registration. Now we have a problem, piggy can't grasp the concept that I live in Lethbridge during the school year (address on my insurance) and live in Calgary during the summer months (address on my licence and registration).

    Goes back to the cop car, starts making some phone calls, prolly to see which Tim's has the hottest coffee at the time, and about half hour later he comes to my window and says " here's your ticket, you have the chance to fight it, i suggest you take your exahaust off." he then explains that i can drive without my exhaust...which i thought was illegal. It's funny that a cop harley davidson is actually louder than my car.

    The fine = $115.00
    The embarrassment of having 2 cop cars sitting behind you for half an hour looking like they're about to arrest you while lots of traffic drives by....priceless.

    Hope no one else get's the prick that pulled me over, there was no need to pull me over, i was obeying the limit, i was driving very carefully ( i haven't had a demerit moving violation in 4.5 years).

    Here's a pic of my "giant" exhaust.

    okay but in my defence, having a clear driving record for 4.5 years and driving the car that i do should have some merit. I know the cop ran the plates, he woulda seen that there have not been any tickets issued against me and that i am a safe driver. The fact that he kept me there for half hour and bitched me out made me mad, not the fact that i got the ticket that i clearly deserved, but 115 bux seemed a lil' steep to me.

    Fight the ticket. You have nothing to lose, and 115 dollars to gain.

    yeah i was thinkin of fighting it....but i did have the exhaust on my car, so how do you fight that??? it's not like fighting a speeding ticket where there can be human error on the cop's part.

    PS the cop had a band-aid on his face, hope no one get's him, he spits when he talks.

    It really depends how loud your exhaust is. Some exhausts can be really LOUD even if the RPMs are low. Without ever hearing it, I can't say if the ticket was justified.

    hehe I finally got my first "ricer ticket" too . Actually, my dad did, driving my 944. Enlarged exhaust tip!

    Oh well, gotta find a stock exhaust for the 944 to fix that shit up.

    Isn't the ticket for the size and not the volume though?
