Looks beautiful up there!

The only Time I drive that road is coming/going from big bear. Good thing you have a Subaru because that road is pretty treacherous when it's snowy!

My commute is far more mundane than yours. Just a few miles through town in nice 70degree weather pretty much year round. Sometimes I even ride my bike!

My trip home used to be fun as hell.
But now I avoid that way due to the dickhead cop that has a hardon over busting imports.

My current trip to work consists of trying to connect 6 green lights together while avoiding the buses in the span of 1.5 miles. I miss the canyons and mountains of the greater L.A. area.

My trip to work is about 40 miles one way, all freeway, pretty flat and mostly straight... The only time of year it's remotely enjoyable is right now because the leaves are all changing color, fall in northern michigan is really a sight to see... We get tons of ice and snow so sometimes my 30 minute trip turns into an hour... But it is fun to drift around and fly by all the fwds...

My old work had a steep incline for one driveway and I sat there and watched as a 4wd truck kept going up, making it almost to the top, then sliding down... When he gave up and went to the other driveway I took the wrx, drove to the top of the hill, stopped, then pulled out On to the road.., not even a single tire lost traction... Should have seen the look on everyone arounds face...

A police officer must have 'probable cause' to pull you over so if you are driving the speed limit, using your blinker to change lanes and your inspection/registration is valid he has no valid reason for pulling you over. If you are not guilty of any of these offenses he could be 'profiling' and subject too disciplinary action all the way up to termination.

As a police officer I despise crooked cops. Also remember if you receive a citation it is NOT an admission of guilt it is kinda like posting your own bond. In TX refusal to sign a citation is an arrestable offence but this comes with a burden on the police officer to bring you directly before a magistrate. 10% of police work is actual policing and the other 90% is paper work.

Rant over.

This is true my friend but here in cali, it is legal to "profile" due to all the gang, but they have come up with many different reasons to pull me over.
I was actually going to become a CHP in the begging of this year but thing just didn't work out with a lot of reasons why.
But if you guys ever herd of the Christopher donner thing here in cali?
well that was actually on the mountain where I live and I herd all the shots.
and after that it was made a sub legal law for cops to profile to pull people over.

THUS THE REASON WHY I HATE CALI!!!
SOMEONE GIVE ME A JOB SO I CAN MOVE OUT!!!!!!!!!!Cry!!Cry!!Cry!

Pulled me over for my tint.
And had a backup car follow him to my destination.

I'm fighting it simply because pay law that he sited me for states that you must be able to see into the vehicle.
Think it was pa 186.46 or something like that.

He said cars can only have 70 and everything else can have whatever..

Bs. Outdated rule if you ask me.

There's an old law in the town where I'm from that states. If a man leaves his horse untied while not in use, in town. He can be subject to being hung... Still a law.. Haha
