Anyone hear about the CHP?

I've heard this on the news a few times today...

Basically, the California Highway Patrol has taken the stance that they've "lost control" of traffic here. To "fix" this, they are going to start traveling in teams of 5+ cars. This way they can pull over EVERY car that is speeding in a pack, not just the fastest one. They say that tickets for 5 mph will no longer be unusual. Also, most officers are now soley responsible for ticket-writing, and are have been told to ignore minor calls such as flat tires.

thumbsdown thumbsdown

Screw the pigs.

Yeah, I don't think that they are either. As long as cars are physically able to go over 65mph, people will speed. The real issue with this new policy is that a LOT of us who drive safely are going to be targets for speeding tickets now. angry

^^^ya, tho i dont live in cali...i feel the same..

pigs are more targeting to imports than other cars...especially those cars that looks fast.

i think the people they should give ticket to is that who turn too slow, and who dont use blinker when turning.

and some tickets to those who dont know that the left lane is the faster lane...and drives under Max speed limit...i mean, if you gonna take ur time enjoy driving like a ass shit slow motherfucking turtle...go to the right lane...and have you flocks of turtles enjoy ur driving under speed limit and crash yourself because you drive too slow, and reacts slow too...

omg... puke cry cry cry cry cry

sorry...but im too pissed on why those people who dono how to drive get to bypass the law...

i think now the only traffic law is only the speed...

and reckless driving is under the law of overspeed for some dumbshit reason...

again..im sorry..

Am a cop.Not in cali tho

Just to let you know we aren't all assholes. I agree with the whole slow driver in the wrong area bit. I see two people, one doing 8 miles an hour over the speed limit (as long as it's not in school zone)and another who turns without a signal. Guess who I pull over? yup yup, the retard who thinks it's ok to make sudden turns.

Two years ago I got hit by a car not using his signal, let me tell you, when you run into someone, and his car is white and his lights are blue...expect a LONG day.

Sometimes I just sit in the garage staring at this beautiful wolf, doing nothing, just admiring it. Life feels gooood when you have a Celica in your garage.

ya..the turning with out signal is dangerous...
and sometimes when they turn into streets, they dont use the signal, and they brake suddently, i would be like wtf is he braking for, and when they turn, i would always give them a finger..

when i got in my car accident, me and my sisters got a ride from the officers to an exit and we walked to the gas station.
on the ride there, the cops were honking and talking smack about other drivers in their way! i was like WTF???? they turned their lights on and sirens on if someone was in their way! might i add this was during traffic backup while it was SNOWING!
when the cars in front couldnt merge into the opposite lane, the cops drove off the road and went around WTF! if they can't even abide by the law, why the fu*k should they screw everyone else over!
i'm not saying all cops are fags,just the dickheads that everyone seems to encounter.
my mother know's of a few and i know a "few" who are really good officers.

But honestly you would do the same. If you saw two cars both going over the speed limit and one is a tricked out celi and the other is like a SUV which are you gonna pull over?

my friend just told me about this yesterday and it fuckin sucks. there are a lot of nice cops, but all the rest are fucked up. i got pulled over twice for a mistake i made and i talked to the officer and none of them gave me a ticket, while the other fucker gave me a ticket for going speed limit and he couldnt pass me and he just pulled me over. according to the new law and my friend, they will pull over whoever they dont fuckin like. if they notice/see you fast, you get a ticket. they dont even have to gun you to see how fast ur going i think. and if you drive 100 or over, license is suspended. all i gotta say is that their trying to make more money, for wut? by giving out more tickets? FUCK THEM! the people driving fast are spending more gas since their gunning their cars tongue. if you wanna make money, make it the right way. make the economy better!
