What do cops hassle you about most?

Is it the hyper white bulbs?, no front plate?. too low?
Just wondering... I'm planning on taking off my front plate but don't know if om gonna get pulled over every 5 mins.

Well...

...last night the Geo was going 66km in a 40km. I was in Burlington and didn't know the area. I got off because I didn't BS the cop and didn't give him attitude. Cool cop. Thanx cop dude! Yer da best!

I have hyper whites in the front, side markers and the rear, and never got hassled. I just don't use my turn signals at night if i see a cop behind me. Anyways i think i just jinxed myself.

Hmmmm... Maybe it's just me, but if you don't use your turn signals while a cop is behind you isn't that asking for trouble more then having blue bulbs? Maybe I just misunderstood.

What if he pulled you over for not using your turn signal, and asked you why you didn't use it? Would you say, "Well, I didn't want you to see my illegal turn signal bulbs"? LOL

I see what you're saying Justin and it goes through my head each time i do it, but i would rather get pulled over for not signaling than to have my whole car checked out to see if there is anything else illegal on it.
