Um, transform and roll out?
Actually, I meant the reader the cop used. I thought those were illegal.
As for a driving test, I don't drive. I don't even have a permit. I see no need to bother right now since I can't afford a car, nor do I need one.
What would Prime say? He'd say, "Ohhhhhhh, my prostate cancer is killing me!! I must get to the hospital now!!"
How else would cops be able to give speeding tickets????? Guesstimate with their eyeballs?
Your logic is flawed, hooman
The only thing I can think you might be confusing for this is a radar detector device, commonly referred to as a "fuzz buster." They detect police radar waves and some even claim to jam them so you can speed all you want and know where to slow down temporarily to avoid tickets.
Some states have outlawed them, others don't have any laws regarding possession of a detector (yet). But the radar the police officer uses is quite legal, and quite accurate in almost all cases regardless of countermeasures you might attempt to use (see: Mythbusters).
"youll never get anything outta me, you dirty coppah! nyeah!"
Cool story. I'd hope that my Decepticon ar freshener would sway a cop, but traffic police are now virtually non existant here in the UK, we have automatic speed cameras, which feel nothing either way.
Ha, I remember a radio interview that was on the internet a while ago, some guy bigging up his Dodge Camero, while saying he had a special paint job that prevented radar readings. When confronted that cops don't use the paint, but aim their lasers/radar/whatever at license plates he then said he had neon going around the licence plate to confuse the radar....
Priceless. I'll have to try to dig it up now.
I'd try it......
but would probably run into a cop who thinks that Gobots were short-changed.
What a stupid police....he's there to enforce the law, not t get into a geek fan and be talking about toys....well, if you ever decide to rob a bank, make sure to bring your transformers goddies to show to cops.......
Ahhhh, see, the radar meter is outlawed here in NYS.
9 mph over the limit is forgiveable. Armed robbery is across the line.
It's part of a cop's duty to assess a situation and determine whether the speeder was trying to speed, or if it was just a temporary lapse in judgement, didn't see the speed limit sign, etc. Personally, I'm very pleased with the officer striking up a conversation and being friendly to a person he's pulled over, it shows that police are human too (rather than ticket dispensing machines). I've been let off before, and was quite grateful for it.
Cops are people too?
But would you have the same respect for the officer had he done his job and wrote you the citation?
Don't forget to bring G1 Megatron.
Honestly, yes. He's doing his job to keep the streets safe, and the only person who's at fault for getting a ticket is myself.
The few that are out there with an axe to grind have cost the good ones a lot of respect. Get to know one or two of your local police officers and I think your impression of them will be much better.
If I do a wrong thing, like speeding or passing the red light, he must fine me, simple as that. There is no place for him to get happy because of toys of vintage.
And this guy was a "regular customer", he told it, he shoulded lay the law on him instead of starting a travel for the hall of remiscents.
Actually, I would have. I feel pride in the dedication and service that police officers have. A lot of people give them a lot of crap, and yet the police are there when you need them. It's not easy to do their job.
And, Rodimusconvoy, please read before you comment, I did not say 'regular customer' I said 'repeat customer', referring to the only other time that officer had pulled me over, a couple months ago. I don't really mind if you spread falsehoods and propaganda, as long as you don't say it is the truth.
*runs to Hot Topic to get wristbands*
what are you talking about? :huh
The Radar meter is a box that sits on your dash and detects radar emissions.
Most speed camera devices rely on radar to determine the speed of the target, so when your car becomes the object of scrutiny, the box on your dash goes off to tell you to slow down.
Because the only conceivable reason you'd have one of these is to avoid speed cameras (so you can speed) they are banned in some countries. I think they recently became illegal in the UK. I don't think anyone believed the excuse ('they're used to detect speed cameras, which are put in recognised danger zones, so you can drive safely.') Yah... suuuuuure.
I assume thats what you're confused about... if not, ignore me.
