Got pulled over last night after work... :-)

Was actually sorta cool.. the officer's name is Summer (Last name) I've known her for a while actually, helped her out a while back when she got into an accident and her cruiser was pretty much crushed this last winter, directed traffic for a bit until the actual police showed up to manage everything. Didnt know it was her, but you always get that gut feeling when your looking in yoru rear view mirror and see the cop do a U-Turn in the middle of a road that its gonna be you gettin pulled over


Well, it was sorta neat.. all she told me was I need to pull the towing ball off my bumper because its blocking part of my license plate.. then she started asking me about the truck adn lift and tires an dsuch, she loves the wheel and tire combination. Asked when I did it because last she noticed I had a mostly stock outside truck.. told her it was last week and had to get it done asap because its my daily driver. Great lady too, so she pulled me over just to let me know about that.. she laughed as she was walking off and said she will let the mudflap issue (I took mine off) be dealt with by a state trooper if they pull me over.. so I may go ahead and install the ones I bought a while back. Just for that highway driving.. I really don't want to be the *** throwing water into the air and rocks into peoples windshields ya know



Anyway yep, was sort of neat, haven't seen her for a while and its fantastic to see she is back up and going again. It was a miracle she survived the wreck.. an 18-wheeler pretty much rolled over her cruiser when it was real snowy, and the only part of the vehicle not crushed was directly where she was sitting.. everything else was caved in and crumbled like a tin can.. heck, the engine was even flat..!

haha .. well, to the obvious question, yes she is good looking. And to the question about the ball, after I got home and parked (I onl yhad like 2 blocks to go) I took a peek and you definitely can't see an entire letter from the rear, so I coudl see the issue there...

But other then that, She is one of the few troopers out here I can say is actually more friend then cop. Was good seeing her though, its been a few months =)

ive had a ball on my bumper for a few years now and cops don't care.

they didn't like my smoke license plate cover, i only got warned once about it.
the cop pulled me over for going 13over, let me off with a verbal warning to remove the cover.
