Well so now that all of you know me from my reckless driving ownage...heres another tidbit of info.

So I am coming back from lunch today (damn good Teriyaki I might add) and I am on the freeway (for those of you around here, SR520 by Redmond). Im not in the left lane, but the next one on the right. Im cruising about 70, thinking nothing really and minding my own business. All of a sudden this ricer in a honda accord (deserves to be ) zooms by me in the left lane going at least 85-90. I say to myself what a retard...who you tryin to impress? I look in my rearview mirror to see if hes racing somebody (but then again...not that he would have been winning against anything in THAT car). I see a nice bmw 3 series approaching fairly rapidly from about 1/2 a mile back, the road was fairly empty so its easy to pick out cars. Im like hmm...i guess this guy wants to race the accord. hes getting closer to being next to me and now Im watching him in my side mirror. All of a sudden my world turns blue. i failed to notice he had a set of dashboard lights (aka COP).

I am like holy shit what the fuck? Then he just stomps on the gas to catch up with the accord, who is abuot a mile or 2 ahead of me, again, empty road so keepijg track is easy (this time span seems longer than it really is, so bear with me). So the BMW passes me and i take a look at the plates to see whats goin on here...and lo and behold, its a WSP (wash state patrol) plate with no tags. I actually was keepihg my eye out for sneakies, but I didnt bother checking the plates out on a bmw, cause really, ive never seen one of those before as a cop (in this country at least). He passes me and I see the rear window lights as well, you know the thin led light bars that most undercovers have. So he catches up to the accord and pulls him over. Guy steps out in a State patrol uniform and I am like god damn! ricer gets what he deserves for driving the POS ...

But more importantly.... is a bmw 325i doing in the cops arsenal? I have heard in the past that troopers are allowed to convert their personal cars to police grade, and that the state covers the insurance for it, but you pay for the changes (radio, computer, gun rack, backseat, etc...) didnt know it was actually done though. Anyone else had any similarly WTF experiences like this?

i think, but not exactly sure, but wherei live(NY), if an unmarked cop is trying to pull you over you have the right to keep going, however, u must call the police station and request information on whether the cop behind u is a real one or a fake. then, when u pull over u have the car in drive, or in gear, and only open up the window a crack, until he shows u his badge..

They impound the cars from rich people.. after a certain amount of time.. they take over ownership... and can either auction off the car for the city... or use it.

GH3Y!!!

Cruzin 323is... TAXI'S???? Holy crap dude, that would put a MAJOR damper on my entire life... I can't relax on the highways, so when I get to my destination, I'd be pissed, which makes everyone else around me pissed, which makes everyone around them pissed, which causes a few people to commit suicide. It's a plot by the government to keep the population under control!!!

If I was a cop I'd demand a bmw.

Other than the fact that everyone hates you, being a cop wouldn't be such a bad job. You get to ride around breaking all the laws all the time... you get to see the fastest cars in your jurisdiction (the back of them anyway).... and you get to drive a decently quick car. Not bad. *shrugs*
