I beg to differ. The crime rate the Northern Virginia area is non-existant and cops go after kids more than anything else. Yeah we have the usual robberies and car thefts but nothing serious. For example, in a city that has a raduis of 2 miles there are 50+ police cruisers. What do they do with all of those? Give people speeding tickets for doing 27 in a 25 or arresting kids having fun. My friend got his lisence a year late, because some cop caught him drunk when he was 14. No alcohol was on him, but he was drunk; might have been apple cider but who knows.
Sorry for the rant, but when someone says cops are out looking to arrest only criminals thats just bull. Cops will catch anyone they can, regardless criminal or kid. And this is where the hypocricy comes in. I am sure these same cops sped and got drunk when they were kids, but now they have to be a pain in the neck for kids. Dont get me wrong, I appreciate the fact that they put their lives on the line to protect us and all.
So yeah, you can still get hasseled for it and a warning. And yeah they can give you a ticket too if they wanted, because you're driving a car that smells like alcohol and the first thing they are going to think is that you were drinking.
