I guess your sarcasm detector is in the repair center?
Kind of hard to tell since I do not recall speaking with you previously.

My wife goes through safty checks several times a month on her way home from work. The cops ask for license, insurance and if she's been drinking. That is no violation. It's late at night and a reasonable question.

I was absolutely offended! If this is normal protocol to ask drivers if they've been drinking, I think it's wrong. It's like insinuating a person is guilty without having any evidence to the fact. If he saw me driving erratically, smelled alcohol on my breath or in the car, I can fully understand him asking the question!
He had no probable cause to ask. It's one thing if he smelled booze in my vehicle or if he noticed I was driving erratically. I was simply pulled over for a burned out headlight! I was simply being polite enough to wonder if I was exceeding the speed limit. I'm an honest guy I think police appreciate people are being honest with them.
By the way I lived in Canada sometime in the past and I think Canada has the nicest cops I have ever seen in my life.
