    So I bought a new car, and it draws a lot of attention. It is a white Audi TT convertable, all tuned out. Helluva car.

    Well, I was driving to work today and got pulled over. The trooper issued me 4 citations. Following too closely, improper lane usage, 85 in a 55 and reckless driving. The cop seemed to be having a bad day. When he pulled me over, I was polite and respectful. He asked if I saw the Red Audi tailgating me. When I said yes, he asked why we were racing. I stated we weren't. He said he watched him swerve and speed away. I asked if he saw someone tailgating me, and speed away, when by his calculations, I am already speeding, why he wouldn't pursue the other guy he said it was because I was the first offender. So now I feel screwed. It is BS. He stated I was passing people on the right. Last time I check (today), that is legal http://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/p...03.html#passing

    he stated I almst spun out a few times, which is ridiculous. I asked to see the radar, and he stated I can't, because I would endanger my life. I asked how I get a copy of his dash cam tape and he said call my lawyer and walked away.

    So now I am looking for a lawyer. Any advice?

    lawyer up

    check out the national motorists association.

    The problem with giving the police insane amounts of power is that they become the judge in these cases. While I know that isn't technically how it works, basically, if the cop says you did something, you go in and they assume you will plead guilty.
    Why else would they make traffic schools so readily available and give you the ability to buy your way out of points (they call these things fines)

    What makes me a chick? The fact that I chose to buy a good looking, incredible performing car?

    I think after watching the NOLA beating video, we have all realized just how much power we entrust to someone who, at the end of the day, is no better or more moral than any of us.
    How, therefore, should we put that much power of enforcement in a single person's hands.

    Even if it was a 'chick car,' that only means women will be drawn to it
