I'll be traveling thru Texas from back East (CT) headed to SA. The guy I'm traveling with says out-of-state-cars always get stopped by the highway patrol. So I figure a Rick Perry sticker may help. FYI the guy I'm traveling with has been thru Texas 3 times and has always gotten stopped. Once for doing 70 in a 65mph limit.

Nahhh, put a sticker on your windshield that says:

I contributed to the Policeman's Benevolent Association

-or-

I Gave to the Department of Public Safety's Christmas Fund

For sure you won't be stopped...

/sarcasm

Out of state tags get pulled over. Just stick to the main highways and don't speed. The posted is not a recommendation. The only places where a couple over may slip by would be major metro areas.

Unless the sticker is a huge UT or A&M sticker, your not going to save yourself.

Well....I got stopped outside of El Paso last Tuesday afternoon, but it was (thankfully) only a warning ticket.

I left Texas in August 2007, with Texas plates/registration stickers on the inside driver windshield.

I changed my plates, and registered my car in NM, but did not remove the old windshield sticker. I had been driving back and forth from TX to NM for FOUR years with the stickers still on.

Instead of worrying about speeders, drunks and troublemakers on I-10, the DPS Trooper stopped me for having the old stickers, along with my legal NM plate and plate sticker. It took him 20 minutes to run everything through and issue me my warning ticket.

What a waste of time. Needless to say, I got my scraper and removed the old stickers immediately after I got to my destination in Texas.

So....it doesn't take much to get stopped, but why now, after four years of it??

To put it as euphemistically as possible, the police are capricious.

Doing 70 when the highway is posted with a 65mph speed limit is speeding. Any cop would ticket you unless they had something better to do at the moment. I don't think a Rick Perry bumper sticker will help. Lots of people here hate him.

This driver had Rick Perry in the car with him and it didn't do him any good when Rick Perry tried to talk the trooper out of giving him a ticket.

I rent at least two cars a month, I ALWAYS add an "Obama Sucks" sticker to every one of them

Perhaps NOT SPEEDING would be a better strategy for not getting a ticket.
