Ok this morning im goin to school but on tha way there i have to take tha interstate...so im drivin about 80/85 (i wasnt tha only one) and i notice traffic starts to get heavy so then im startin to get mad cuz i dont see any accidents or anything...come to find out there's a cop ahead of tha pack and nobody wants to pass him thinkin that they're gonna get a ticket...from cruising 85 down to 70 for a long way gets a person pretty aggravated...im jus thinkin, "i wish tha cop would take an exit or somethin so i can get back up to speed." so now it jus looks like a big traffic jam with a cop in front and no one moving ahead...i kno this has happend to someone
because there are more cops than civilians in slidell and they have nothing better to do than tool around looking for someone to hem up.

edit: this was a JOKE so don't get your panties in a bunch guys i'm fucking around.

legally in south carolina if a cop is going fifteen over the speed limit or above light and siren must be activated
key word, "legally" cops dont care at times, its common around me for cops to hit the lgihts to blast through stoplights, only to turn them off and keep cruising. Other cops drive the speed limit and will let you drive faster as long as you are not Speedracer. Others yet will happily cruise aeround 15 over and the second they catch you doing 10 over they tag you.

There are no "chiseled" rules for cops to follow. Just drive goood, make all your movements smoothly as possible, and you wont have any troubles. and 85 versus 70 is what, 60 second difference in 20 miles of driving? pointless to be pissed

Who would imagine that a cop might need to be somewhere in a hurry? Just because we arent running our lights doesnt mean we arent going to a call. There has to be certain criteria to authorize an emergency response. However, cops that do this job long enough know that even though certain information wasnt articulated to the dispatcher to authorize an emergency response, we still have to get to where we're going in a hurry. That may cause an officer to put his lights on briefly to get through in intersection or most commonly speed past you with no lights at all.

I was assuming the laws and a behavior policy was recognized. I meant "chiseled" laws as in ethics. Some cops have poor ethics and it effects the people they deal with.

That said, I realize some cops got shit to do. But Ive seen a cop do that so he could beat sometraffic down to the local culvers so he could stuff his fat face.

From a cops perspective, tthat cop running those lights is responding to something that could possibly blow up into something really bad, I understand that. Im speeaking from my view, and 50% of the time I seen their destination after they blow a light, and most of the time its food related. Others do that and then find a somewhat hidden parking spot to do radar.

The other 50% of the time, The cop blowing lights in respondce to a call that might get big, actually saved the life of a friend. It was a group fight that turned ugly, cops were called, and one such cop heard it and starting on his way, blowing lights left and right, and got there in the nick of time to stop some lil gangsta wannabe fuck tard from shooting friend of mine.

When I say its annoying or bad, what I really mean is that cops are sometimes abusing their power. Not all the time, but enough to make themselves look bad and some people take that out on the whole police force

i was referring to when cops just speed, because they can, i know that a lot of times they wont use lights while going to calls, in some communities around here they will just as a courtesy. but here in Georgetown county, South Carolina. they are passing, or have passed a law that they are going to ad monitoring and GPS systems in their cruisers to prevent cops form speeding, just because its unfair to civilians who might be late for something important who get ticketed by the same cop who ten minutes before the traffic stop was going 75 in a 55 just because he is in a cruiser.

True dat, Id support regulation of the cops, but then you have to look at it from their view. They are being challenged by the very people they work for, which could make some cops even harder to deal with.

yea, but im sure that it could possibly make them see it from the civilian side. maybe if they see how it is to have to drive speed limit or just five about without possible penalties, they would be a little less uptight. or the opposite, no warnings, more tickets just to pass off their misfortune. im sure if it was not for quotas there would be 80 percent less tickets.

Quota is simply measuring there work effort, they cant do a quota because if it was enforced, there would be even more possible issues.

5 over is plenty reason for a ticket, assuming you have a working speedometer and the radar or laser is calibrated. The radar/laser enough isnt good for a ticket, it also is the cops judgement.

Go the speed limit and you should be fine. Seems to me americans like getting whereever way too fast. I enjoy driving, hence why dont mind getting stuck behind a slow moving semi, helps my gas mileage as well :lol drafting FTW :lmao

99% of agencies are using gps on the cars anyway..helps with locating the officer if something goes down and he cant get his location out over the radio

yeah, most larger agencies do, but i live in one of the smallest counties in south carolina, we are further behind on the tech. that larger agencies have. they have belt worn GPS emergency transmitters, if in the even the officer does not physically move his position every fifteen minutes it sends a signal to the communications center and so on. but the monitoring system is new, just another thing our sheriff is doing to stay in office, just like surrounding agencies they are just starting to think "hey every cop doesn't need a gas drinking crown vic, lets use smaller cars (chevy malibu and so on) to save on gas"
