yep the ultra vague, totaly at the discression of the officer, massively expensive,
freedom crushing speed laws
you tell yourself you know its eventually going to happen,
you do this to lessen the blow of something you perceive as a definite, i'm sure it still stings though
^ I tell myself that cause to me i feel things have changed over the last decade.
I perhaps personally feel this because of getting pulled over often & routinely to be asked important things like: your exhaust sounds loud, to i want to see if your headlights are blue,
to do you have any guns or drugs in the car to whre u going what u doin?
again over a decade & with different cars, so its a pattern (theirs)!
1 example last winter i got stopped & the 1st thing the young looking cop said to me was:
YOU MUST BE A CRIMINAL! DRIVING THIS CAR!
I said: Must i be officer? and what crime must i b guilty of driving a 12yr old car worth $4K?
The convo ended with him saying "you drive a car like this you want attention"
why i never filleda written complaint is beyond me, to busy living to even be bothered i guess?
got a plethora of stories just like!
but my point is i drove alot & i noticed this massive increase in Traffic enforcement over the years
all the while crime rates are going up, patrols in certian hoods went down. immigrants & citizens were hang'n on corners all hours slang'n something & no cop seemed to pull up on them as they were there for over a year, everynight -even after the buses stopped. you read about more shootings, more violence over petty amounts, more corruption, cops getting charged: assault, crack - theft & usage, breach of trust. and the gov hired more traffic cops to write more muffler tickets
? realizing their mistake they make speeding a $$$ huge revenue generator by passing rediculous laws that go against facts, tolerance & freedom!?
THEY CRIMINALIZE teh Speeding,,, anyways u all know this & im ranting.
what am i ranting about again? oh yeah.
Loss of Freedoms via a loss of free mobility with u at the control of ur own vehicle & u feeling stomped by the system once again. anyways im sure some hollier then thou 'Cee u Next Tues' types will chime in with their pro party ideologies & mantra's: its a 'privilege '
yeah read above u sure would feel privileged, privileged to be $odomized at some1 elses whim
cause if you'll kindly remember the law is so vague that the cop can say whatever he wants.
and then u ur hard earned money & ur lawyer can figure it all out later. we don't even have dash mounted cams on cop cars up here!
geez I shoulda just copied & pasted from older threads on the same subject, i wrote all this (a prediction)
anyways i type drove cause i don't see how one could possibly hope to keep their licence while owning a bmw or nice car in this new age/ environment of 'lets get em'. speeding - again don't matter if u was or wasn't cause its the officers sole decision! and thats the part of the problem - will the cops harrass me for owning nice cars, should i even buy one. a truely free fkn utopian society we're creating here
I feel free! free to take my chances out there, pull the lever on that slot machine as it were.
Its really funny how i rolled in a Toyota for the last 7+ months with no issues
but seem to get it once a month on average in the bimmer. same driving style
wow! i think its a pattern
profiling sucks, harrasment sucks, putting some lawyers kids through college sucks. always having to be in a state of anxiety & legitimate paranoia whenever i leave my residence to Drive somwhere due to unjust panic laws that will financially destroy some people, that you have no Recourse against - sucks! and may be a violation of the charter!? I sure think it is! i read some of the 1st 1's charged in ontario are pushing it as a violation of their charter rights
i still wonder if any canadian veterans of afghanistan (young guys) that lost friends & saw actual combat 'for our freedom' have experienced this law yet? i'd love to read their opinion
and again im sure some hollier then thou 'Cee u Next Tues' types will chime in with their pro party ideologies & mantra's: its a 'privilege ' yeah read above u sure would feel privileged, privileged to be $odomized at some1 elses whim, cause these laws are whacked (ont & qc)
this is an opinion piece! the opinion of a guy in his 30's that thinks shit has changed for the worse
