Just got pulled over by the Pennsylvania State Police in one of their Maximum Enforcement Programs (similar to a DUI Checkpoint or an Inspection Sticker Check) for the Easter Holiday. They were checking for seat belts and kid restraints. I told him I was on my way to the hospital to help perform Open Heart Surgery (which I was)! He said it didn't matter and that I should fasten my seat belt and that I should know better. He asked for my Registration, License and Insurance Card; came back 2 minutes later with a citation for not wearing my seat belt. I asked him why he thought I wasn't wearing my seat belt and what caused him to believe I wasn't. He said he could see the "Fasten Seat Belt" sign on my dash illuminated. "WOW" I said, "You've got great eyesight!" "By the way, You are correct in that the ""Fasten Seat Belt"" light does illuminate when I am not wearing the factory belts; however did you happen to also notice these RED, 3 INCH, SIMPSON, 6 POINT HARNESS BELTS WITH CAM LOCK RELEASE THAT I AM WEARING?????!!!!!" His jaw dropped, he turned white, then red (to match the belts) and said "Oh?" He walked back to his car and came back with a "Congratulatory Appreciation" for being a safe driver. I said "Gee Thanks but you've delayed me 5 minutes from Emergency Surgery for this?" He said he could offer me an escort. I said "No Thanks, you probably won't be able to keep up!" "Why don't you stick this where your six point binds you!" "Bye!"

DJWorm:

I feel your pain. I was out driving Saturday, and my V1 lit up like a x-mas tree everytime a cop came past in the other direction.
Fortunately I saw them first, and assumed they would light me up, so I got on the brakes hard. Metro areas seem to be especially bad, so I try to keep the "spirited" driving on the track, or at least in the farm country. At least the guy didn't try to get you on some other bogus charge (no front plate, etc.).

I refuse to put a front plate on my car. I acutally got stopped last year, and the cop never said a word about the front plate, although he did give me a ticket for "improper passing". Yes, that's right, improper passing. That one got dismissed. I try to pass more "properly" now. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

DJWorm -- where in PA were you? I live in PA, and traveled to and from Tunkhannock, PA ("up state," for me) this weekend -- but didn't really see many cops until I got back toward Philadelphia, specifically on the Blue Route (476).



Always good to compare notes to find out where the choice hide-outs are!
