Got pulled over last night..but not all bad
Was coming home last night from downstate. Around 10pm, pitch black outside. Going 45-50 in a 55, deer country, not unreasonable for the conditions. A cop followed me for a minute or two, then flicked his headlights off for a second then back on, and then turned on the blue lights. I have been passed by cops since the tail but have yet to see what one would say. He asked if I was driving a Cavalier, I said no it is a Celebrity. He said it was the oddest looking one he had seen. I explained that the tail is solidly attached, and it helps with gas mileage, and I was getting 40 mpg downstate and back with it. Then he asked where I was coming from and where I was going and I told him I had to pick up my daughter in Holton and was headed home, and he asked if I had anything to drink and I just showed him my Faygo Moon Mist. He said the reason he pulled me over was that my plate light was burned out and I should fix it soon. (That was my fault, I knew I had to put it in before venturing into the night, but I had forgotten about it.) I can't take all the credit for the tail, I told him about what Basjoos can get after going all out on mods to a Civic. He seemed rather impressed, and asked if he could take a picture of the tail and I said sure. He actually seemed pretty friendly. He took a pic and went on his way.

So just maybe this might be a start on getting locals interested in saving fuel.

That's how it goes. I recently got pulled over for one brake light that didn't come on. I said it's an old car, probably all I have to do is wiggle it. Ended up with no violations, no anything, but I was made late for my appointment. :mad:

I have to admit my car does look like something a mexican drug dealer might drive so they look for any excuse to do the electronic anal exam (records check).

Around here abouts if you don't drive a modified diesel 4x4 pickup truck you are in their way and they do get up close and personal!

Real trucks don't have spark plugs :)

In South Carolina (Where I am) we NEVER get pulled over for no tag lights, I didn't have any on my CRX, my Fiero, Or my Neon...I'm not sure about the Maxima but I have not gotten pulled over for it ever...
