STUPID COPS!! - sick of getting pulled over!

i keep getting pulled over!! 4 times in the past weekend!!!

1st cop going the opposite direction sees me. whips it around after me!! pulls up and gives me a warning for no front liscense plate. No fender flares and No mudflaps, and a broken tail light.

2nd time. cop stops me for no fender flares and no mudflaps. WARNING!!

3rd. I have 33's and my speedo is way off! apparently i was going 78 on the freeway but my speedo was around 64-65. got a ticket. and a WARNING for broken taillight, and no mudflaps.

4th. Pulled over for having my tow ball on when not towing because it blocks the view of my liscense plate. Just another warning.

IM SO TIRED OF THIS!!!!

ANY ADVICE ON THE TICKET I GOT??

someone don't know the rules of their state. if they are going to keep harrasing you about it why not just fix them? and is it a fix it ticket?

Huh? Maybe you should obey the law, then you wouldn't get pulled over.

wash your truck, slow down, get soem fender flares, buy a tuner to reset your speedo, and either fight the ticket and pay it and i know we have a points system in Fl so take traffic school to eliminate them if it applies.

Seriously. Maybe you should take the hint and take some steps to make your truck more legal.

um.... other than your fourth you have vehicle violations on all of those. tires probably cant stick out past the fenders in your state, you for sure need a front plate, and since you have 33's on a ranger that came with 30s stock youre speedo will be off...


all but the 4th you deserved imo

I'm thinking there's a little more to the story (aggressive driving or something) 'cause I've never had an issue with cops....

I have advice. Fix your truck, stop breaking the law, and stop blaming the police for your screw ups. Its your own fault, accept responsibility for your mistakes and get on with life. Oh and also, refering to cops as stupid in response to your own screw ups, on a forum that is OWNED BY A POLICE OFFICER is probably not a good idea. Thats like #5 on your list of screw ups there.
