Ya dude... sorry but you're against the odds here. No one I know has been awarded any courtesy. Only story I ever hear is officer letting a pretty
girl off and trying to get her number. Police officer is the type of job that attracts power hungry individuals. Sorry man.
I'd want to say on this...over all the years driving a truck, I collected quite a wide representation for what tickets look like in our lower 48
states. Equipment tickets.... Speeding tickets.... parking tickets.... logbook tickets.. You name it. I wish I could say how many it was, but sadly..I
don't know off the top of my head and I'm not digging my legal files out to count for this ..but it was enough.
Plenty of warnings in there too though. The tickets came most often from the unforgiving types in Ohio, California and for the last couple years I was
on the road, Indiana of all places. The warnings? Well, "Yes sir, No sir" as just one very simple thing to do in a traffic stop for attitude can be
the difference of hundreds of dollars to remember it all by. Some may call that kissing their butt. I just thought of it as professional courtesy. (It
was also to lower the costs of doing business.
* I got mouthy once...because an Ohio state cop actually wrote me 72 Mph in a Cannon Express truck governed at 64 Mph on flat ground. I believe I'm
also one of the VERY few to have a friggen Ohio ticket go on my out of state DMV record...as everyone insists they never normally do. Go figure. That
one hurt too.
