Re: A year with my license and now my first ticket(s)

Yeah, i'm actually purdy good at keeping my eyes open and have always spotted cops before they spotted me, but this one was an unmarked sheriff's vehicle. Seems to be a growing trend. The sheriff's department in my county has stripped the decals off of all of their trucks and so now you will never spot them.

They all are those crown victorias.....well mostly, so there pretty easy to spot even at night. Even if its not a cop I slow down and wait till I can see the gov. plate on em....then speed off...
Again just keeping the eyes open.......Most of the time its the old folks/ mexicans in their black wanna be police cars.....(Im Mexican so its all good.....)

One of my buddies had a flashlight that had some kind of strobe in red and blue, he sits in the fast lane wile holding it in the front window and people move like crazy....its awesome.


I hate those crown vics that random people buy....it slows traffic down
Although if you could get one with the red and blue lights in the grill....that be sweet!!!!!!

Hmmm... Not positive, but pretty sure that a Sheriff in Pennsylvania is not premitted to make a traffic stop. Interesting.
