I grew up in STL and will soon be moving back. Recently they've added some new undercover police cars here where Im living and they are KILLING US with tickets! They have so far added silver mustang GTs Black chargers with black rims, durangos, magnums, f-150s, and excursions that you would never look twice at. Its such bull****, so I was wondering if they've done anything similar in STL and how are the cops around there with giving out tickets? Im a good driver I dont do anything rediculous, only speed to get to work on time you know normal **** and yet I am paying so much money over these ****in cops!!!

You fail to realize you're racking up tickets due to your driving habits, not because of the "****in cops."

I'm probably going to tell you what everyone else you've encountered has. Give yourself enough time to get where you're going. Drive the speed limit if conditions permit. Keep right. And, don't speed on MY road. Be lookin' out for you!

Have a nice day.

Oh, yeah, almost forgot - my car has four wheels with red and blue lights.

My driving habits are fine, my last ticket was for a yellow light which I made sure was still yellow and I couldnt just slam on my brakes and let the guy behind me crash into me. When I first moved down here the mexican at the dmv gave me a learners license in exchange for my DRIVERS license, which I didnt notice until I got pulled over for going 32 mph in a 25 zone. He told me I had to find someone to drive me home or he would have my car towed. Do you think that was right? No. The time before that I got pulled over for switching lanes and not using my blinker on a two lane road with very few ppl on it might I add, I was driving my mothers car who had just moved down after me and had apparently gotten her insurance switched before getting florida tags, so even tho the cop saw that her name was on the insurance card and the registration, he gave ME a ticket for not having proof of reg.

Even when I moved here the beach patrol cop I met told me to watch out because the cops down here are ruthless. So I am hoping it is not the same in STL because I cannot afford to pay for you to reach quota. Maybe you all should spend more time busting all those drug dealers and wigger kids tryin to be gangsters and leave the working people alone.

Although I shouldnt me angry at you because it is actually our government who doesnt pay you **** unless you take as much money from us as you can... So please pull me over because I have plenty more to say. Have a

GREAT day!

While I have to agree with our copper/\ and tell you to slow down a tad, I will say that I have never seen someone get pulled over by a foreign car.

Please tell me you've read "Eats, Shoots and Leaves" ShadowCaver. If you get a kick out of the red and blue lighted wheels, you'd really appreciate it!

Props to cops, 902! Thanks for keeping us safe. I'm a fast driver, but I take my medicine if I get pulled over. "Don't do the crime if you can't do the time".

Since when is speeding normal? Maybe Babycakes would rather an ambulance pick up her dead and mangled body from the accident she will eventually have than get a speeding ticket. Believe me, as a dispatcher, and the wife of a cop, having to deliver a message to the family that someone they love has been in an accident is not much fun at all. So it seems to me you have 2 choices........either stop speeding or quit bitching about having to pay the tickets.
