Re: Riding without licence plates? That
I do have to interject one comment here... Having worked for a police department for 4 years (no, I wasn't a cop) one of things I learned while working there is that roughly 80% of the bad guys (real bad guys) that police catch, is DUE to traffic stops. They always run wants/warrants checks on people and vehicles when they stop them, and bad guys are amazingly stupid drivers. This does NOT mean that if you are pulled over that you're automatically a bad guy, but c'mon, if somebody the cops pull over KNOWS that their license has been revoked, they have no insurance, they have a $10,000 warrant out for their arrest, you'd think they'd be driving like grandmothers, but they don't. Also, having lived in a country that was MUCH more "socialized" (West Germany, before the wall fell) than the U.S., I have to say that our police are FAR more easy to live with than the barely disguised Gestapo that masquerade as Polizei over there. I'm not by any stretch of the imagination saying that cops here are angels, or perfect, or even that they're all that great, just that it CAN be far, far worse.
