Nope, because I don't work for a Department like that. But I know there are some that do, and I'm in complete agreement with you on that.

And BTW, although I have been speaking in the present tense, I'm currently in a plainclothes unit, and no longer do the V&T stuff. It's just easier to 'splain it like I am. Cause some of ya's need lots of explainin' [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Wells, I'z needz ya to 'splain one mo' thin.

I'm assume V&T is Visual patrol and Traffic???.

Glad for you on that. . (moving on to plainclothes) . . I'm sure it's much less stressful!!!! I have many friends still pounding back in Atlanta and I worry about them daily!

Don't think there are many of those around. Most are handheld or mount with simple suction cups, or even velcro onto a fixed bracket. very easy to remove.

By the way Carve. . . Ever had your radar unit just start popping and smoking to the point that you had to exit your car for fear of smoke inhalation???? It's called a 750 watt magnitron with a crude antenna!!!
Hell, I thought that was my Game Boy! :

By the way carvemeister, why are the feds pushing states to persue felonies over misdemeanors?? i.e. if a crime is committed and the prosecutor can either try it as a misdemeanor of felony, the feds want him to go with the felony.
How the hell would I know? You'd have to ask the D.A., I'm just a peanut pusher. Nothing has changed down here at the bottom of the barrel.

Hmmmm. . . Maybe because every time they convict with a felony another American looses their voice in government (the right to vote) and their right to bear arms. Seems pretty sordid to me.
You're reading too many spy novels. : : Ski more, think less. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Unfortunately I think more WHEN I ski!!!!

No, actually the FJD is pushing this. Whether or not it's for these reasons are beyond my scope. I just know that these are consequences of being a convicted felon (not by experience either).

ANYway, it's just interesting and I don't put anything past this present govt. Trust me, . . I could tell you, . . . but then . . . .

Let's just say that after spending several months training in Montana and several years working Uncle . . . Well, I just don't have the same faith anymore that I did when I was a wide-eyed schoolboy.

I thought I read somewhere that a state wanted to pass a law so that if you appealed a speeding ticket and were found guilty you would be charged with a felony offense.

Maybe it was a misdemeanor but it still sucks either way.

That's a good way to get people to pay tickets and not go to court.

V&T = Vehicle & Traffic. Sorry 'bout da slang. And actually it wasn't usually very stressful. More boring for me than anything. Plainclothes can actually be more stressful, but a lot more interesting (usually).

The constant dealings with 15 year old girls kicking each other's butts at school over ex-boyfriends, and their AOL I/M death threats followed by me trying to convince their lunatic parents that their lives are not really in danger can be a bit stressful though.

Of course many of these little punks are snowboarders too, and their parents can't see the trouble with that either.

Hey, did somebody mention something about a Radar Detector? :

There's just not a good one to show my 100% agreement with you!!! You're right, it's usually the same ones.

To any who wants to flame me on that I will tell you now that I speak with authority on the subject matter. I have five children, two of whom are in high school and two others in middle. The 5th is only 3 1/2 so he's the easiest to get along with right now :

Sumthin' like that!

I just think that Americans need to get over their attitude that driving is a RIGHT. . . It's not a right, it's a privilidge. I personally think that the privilidge to drive should cost a one time fee of app. $1500. This cost would go to offset an intensive two day training, one in the classroom and one on a road course specifically designed for the purpose. Then a test is given over the info covered. If you fail you get to retake the test (but not the two days) at no further (or at least a very minimal) fee. If you still fail, (or let's also add if you don't want to pay the $1500), then you're issued a very restrictive license that bars you from driving interstates, in adverse conditions, etc.)

This would ensure that drivers are for the most part well aware of their responsibilities, AND I don't think anyone who pays for a license in such a manner would necessarily want to disobey the law and jeapordize the license.

Of course in a system as such, left lane limits should be higher and more violations of slower traffic keep right should be issued.

I know, I'm a radically conservative, liberal fascist!
