    I was at a local shop today. They started talking about this sticker that costs $150. It's a show of support for State and local law enforcement. You don't actually get anything except for the sticker, but one of the ladies in the shop has been let off three times after the cop saw the sticker.

    Sounds like a bribe to me.:shrug:

    Of course, having a sticker doesn't give anyone the right to be stupid, but it sounds like a way to save on small infractions. :blink:

    150.00 is not worth 3 "small" infractions, tho. Just take it off of her car :)

    I was just surprised that it was happening. I haven't had a ticket in two years, and I drive like a maniac. The trick is to have a grocery getter, with decent exhaust pushing over 200 hp. Unless I'm turning 7k+, they barely even look.

    those stickers arent worth the shit they are printed on.

    if you believe you can talk a cop out of giving you a ticket, your best bet is to drop some names of his superiors, or do like i did once....

    cop a "stuck up rich white boy" attitude and name drop the name of one of the captains of the force and the name of a superior court judge who happens to be a "family friend"

    if you can bullshit like i did that time, you might be able to get out of it.....
