    Today on my way home, i was going onto the on ramp and saw a blue dodge caravan and a white camaro parked. i thought there was an accident, but then i saw flashing blue and red lights coming out of the caravan. There were 2 women in there mid 30's standing there behind the white car. one was writing a ticket. the woman writing a ticket was wearing blue jeans, white polo, and a denim jacket and sunglasses. the other lady was wearing khaki pants and a green polo (yes, it looked hideous). anyways, it had regular washington plates. plate # TBB-067. it was a total unmarked car. from what i have read, you don't have to stop for an unmarked car with non uniformed police. i'll see if i can find the statue.

    it looked like this. Beware of your state trying to get tricky. :ph34r:

    Maybe they didn't pull them over for a moving violation, because I believe any cop can enforce the laws in that specified jurisdiction, as long as it conforms with that jurisdiction.

    In edmunds where my old man lives there is an unmarked camaro rolling around, but the license plate says WSP on the right side, so you can easily tell its a Washington State Patrol automobile.

    i'm sure they are out to get people who road rage and weave in and out of traffic. basically being douche bags. there is probably a petition from soccer moms saying people are cutting them off and such. what else would they be doing in a minivan in civilian clothing. they usually use suvs around here if they are doing something as a utility vehicle or special sectors of the police.

    The irony here is, I either get cut off by soccer moms, or idiots from Ohio. The kicker is idiot moms from Ohio, I stay away from those vans.

    YES! I live in Indiana and passed through Ohio on a road trip, and that is the only place where 1) I have seen THAT many cops, and 2) so many people never signal and cut you off all the time. Ohio drivers SUCK, I had never felt raod rage from the passenger's seat before then.

    On that same road trip my buddy and I stopped and helped a family out who was stranded, radiator huse busted on their CR-V, and being Honda guys, we knew it was our duty to help them out. The dude made us take $20 for gas, too, so the good samaritans came out ahead : ) But the stupid Ohio traffic zipped by so close to where we were working I am amazed we both kept all of our limbs.

    And I thought even unmarked vehichles ALWAYS had law enforcement/government plates... o_O

    edit > double posts...

    and the unmarked depends on the state
    i know NY has an executive order from the govenor against it
    but that didn't stop them from pulling me over

    See, they only start sucking once they reach the indiana border. It's really weird, I never see them pull stupid shit like that when I'm on I75 or US30 in Ohio.

    I was coming back from Lima the other week, and this lady was behind me all the way through ohio. Once we reached the Indiana border where the speed limit goes down, she sped up and flew past me then cut me off. (on US30)...

    I don't know how many times I've gotten on to I469 from 30 and have to yield the right of way to people FROM OHIO who should be yielding to me. One asshole stayed side by side with me almost all the way up the friggen offramp.
