Gotta love cops

I was leaving a friends house last night rather late, and I have a cop follow me home. I pull in my driveway and he pulls up right behind me. Then proceeds to ask for my license and registration. No blue lights or anything. Tells me I left the house "burning tires" and that is why he followed me. Gets me in the car and puts a breathilizer in my face. I blow a point 00. Cop then proceeded to write me a warning for "burning" tires. DEFENDERS DON'T BURN TIRES!!! Shouldn't have argued with him but oh well.

In this state you could have walked into the house with your middle finger in the air.

OTOH I can light up all four and anytime I go around a corner one chirps a little.

Dunno about burning tires. But I got a ticket last weekend on Route 2 for going 81 in a 55. I was polite and apologetic to the officer and he knocked it to 65.

It's amazing how fast my truck goes when I pull all of the recovery crap and spare parts out.

Kind of story that burns me.
The cop was way wrong on that. Wrong procedure and illegal as was the confrontation if conducted in your driveway. If you want to challenge, call the station house (the officers name is on the warning as is a police central line) and say you are concerned about an officers conduct, but are afraid of retaliation. Do NOT talk to the duty officer but ask for someone else. Who ever you speak to, you must ask for that officers name, department and badge number. Outline the situation, explain your vehicle CAN NOT burn rubber (though the cop may have meant you were driving fast), ask if there are other complaints on that specific officer.
Most likely nothing will come of it, but if it is a trend, you may help someone else in the future.
