I know there's a lot of reverence given police officers in our culture and I understand the nature of their jobs, but I also know many of them love the power and authority that comes with their badge and allowing a person to basically give someone a traffic ticket in this manner is too much power in the hands of these guys.
Has anyone ever gotten "pace clocked" and given a ticket before?
I supect he would have to use his speedometer to pace you? If that is the case it would probably need to be calibrated from time to time. Other than that I don't see how you would approach it.
Shut up and pay your fine, citizen.
That galls the hell out me.
