Angry God Bless the WSP!!!

RANT RANT RANT!!!
I am soooo sick of the Washington State Patrol!! Not that I haven't met a lot of nice, polite, genarally good looking troopers in the last FREAKIN WEEK.....

Lately i have been stopped for no license plate, speeding, turn signal, headlight....oh, and did i mention NO TICKETS were given. Is this harrassment, or curiosity on the part of our "wonderful men in blue with funny little bow ties and silly hats????"

Last Friday - pulled over for not using a turn signal in a turn lane!!! I had it on & turned it off when i entered the lane. Dunno why, i just did. I got pulled over for that....grrr...that's just BS. Come on!!

Yesterday - pulled over and give a "warning" for my "green" (ionized) lights. They aren't green, they aren't blue, they aren't even that bad & i have had them on since 2/99!!! What the hell do they think i am, some kinda drug smuggler???? *****!! The trooper almost caused an accident cutting off the dude behind me to pull me over....

I know the car attracts attention And i won't change it either....guess i gotta just get used to this harrassment? It is harrassment ya know. I am (w/exception of the speeding) basically obeying the traffic laws and they're stopping me for stupid stuff just cuz my car is DIFFERENT! I know a lot of you will say I am asking for it....but i know some of you have to experience this crap too.....

I am just looking for some sympathy here!

Anyone have some similar stories???

(ok. i am done now.)
jamie

just had to let that out....

Cops in my area like to hand out equipment violations to import cars. My friend got pull over for his exhaust. The cop claimed that his exhaust was too loud, but in fact he only had a big tip weld on to the stock exhaust. The loud exhaust sound was actually from the Mustang next to my friend's car!!!

He also worte like 2 pages of ticket, including clear cornor, intake, fog light too low, illegal headlight, winshield tint too low, and no front plate.

Here is the worse part, the cop told him he could only get the ticket sign off to a state refereal station, (this means he can not get a cop to sign off the ticket.)

Now, that is some discrimination against sup-up import cars.

Out of the mere 10 times i have been pulled over(once in my RS)the staters are the ones that have never given me a ticket. Just last month i was pissed at this van in the fast lane doing 50 near bellevue. So i went in the middle alne and punched it up to about 65..flying past a unmarked stater(DOH!!) couldn't see him because of the huge ass van in my way...needless to say i pulled over immediately and he gave me the whole cop talk to young kid. I never got a ticket from him, seems that if you tell the truth to staters they'll let you off...tell anything to a city cop and they'll give you a ticket no matter what. Course my RS doesnt have 8" yellow letters on it... i bet more than anything they see a blonde driving a tricked out car and wonder "wtf!" gotta pull her over and check her out!"
