Probably makes sense. That way there’s no, “Don’t you know who I am” dance with the cop. Of course any member of the state legislature who pulls this should be kicked out, but that’s another issue.
Call it part of the emergence of the “super citizen,” homo superius, who populate the law making bodies of this great land and don’t have to live by the same rules we do.
