Wink PBA card

I was driving to a wedding in Atco, NJ sat, when a cop decided to pull me over. I saw him drinking his coffee just relaxing when i passed him, he pulled out, and caught up to me, pulled me over. Took my info, i had my pba card on my lap. He told me I was pulled over for my tints (very light, but nevertheless), but he saw the pba card, asked where i got it, i gave a nice story where i got it since the issuers name i didn't even know.
long story short, gave back all my info after staying in his car for 10 mins, and let me go...waist of time...at least i didn't miss cocktail hour
tints still on!

Question

This may seem to be a dumb question to some but...what the heck is a PBA card?

Policeman's benelovant association (spelling?) says that the bearer of the card is a courteous and safe driver

So how do you get one, M8? I've got an uncle that is a cop and the only thing he's ever been able to give me is his buisness cards...

Now I just want to say, I'm a very good driver, I've had that card issued to me every year, no points on my license since i got my license 7 years ago(knock on wood). True, I'm not related to the person who issued the card, but my father worked with him, so he gave me one. Besides that, I don't blame the card being taken away for speeding and such. I just wish tints were legal in NJ, or to a certain shade, as mine is very light in the front.

8Complex; I don't know how it is in your state. Here in NJ you get an allocaion of these cards based on the size of your Dept. I give mine to certain friends and family. though most of my family don't live in this country so my friends make out like bandits.
it's possible that your Uncle does not get these cards or that they don't even exist in your state. I gave a card to a guy i was in the army with; he is from VA. the VA trooper (true road nazis; even by NJ standards) looked at the card, laughed and wrote him a summons. here in NJ on the other hand, they carry some weight.

Don't ever get pulled over by a Virginia Trooper. I'll only say that they take their job VERY seriously and don't cut a lot of slack. Oh if there are any VA Troopers here on the board here I drive a yellow and green AMC Pacer...

PBA cards mean nothing..unless thier signed by the issuing officer. And unless there is some sort of relationship between the issuer and the holdee. I would have ticketed him. We have an uncanny ability to filter the (my cousins third brother gave it to me b()ll*****).

just my .02 cents

About the insurance thing, 99% of insurance companies will not raise rates on the first infraction, they wait for the second one, just to make sure it was not a mistake.

I am not certain that I understand the ethos of the VA state troopers. I understand that each time they pull someone over they are risking their life because it could be an armed felon or worse. Fine, they have a hard and risky job, I do not dispute that. I do however have a problem with the idea they seem to carry that each pullover should be treated as an armed rapist-murderer-matress tag-ripper-offer and accorded all respect there in. They expect to be seen as virtual gods and honored as such by subservient speach and gesticulation. That is going too far. If I go 11 over and I am ticketed I expect to be approached with due caution just as any other traffic stop would be. I do not however forget that that state employee, who works for me the citizen, puts on his pants one leg at a time and wipes his ass with toilet paper the same as me is not a supreme authority to whom I must prostrate myself to as an inferior being. I don't know where the idea comes from but they need to tone down the harsh barking language, use the proper polite forms of address and act like they are speaking to their next door neighbor and not someone they despise.
