A tale of Law Enforcement to make you giggle:

Okay, I've been driving around on a dead inspection sticker since the end of July - I knew it was dead, and so did the husband. Life has been busy and we just kept putting it off and putting it off.

Fast forward to today - the teenaged Marauder and I are coming home from the grocery store. I spy the car in my rear view mirror - lights are on, but no siren. I pull over and sure enough - I get a summons because of the dead inspection sticker. I deserve it. I did the deed. Thanks, officer, have a nice day.

So, I pull back on to the main drag to head home. Take one turn and go through the little neighborhood. Another police car passes me going the other direction. I see him turn around in my rear view mirror. I make another couple of turns (while he catches up) and - you guessed it - he turns his lights on and pulls me over.

After seeing the OTHER citation sheet with the time of 10 minutes before, he STILL felt the need to run my license and registration. At least I didn't get ANOTHER ticket.

I asked the second officer, "Did they make an announcement this morning for you all to check for stickers?"

He said no, but I have my doubts....

Oh well, that was my day. How was yours?

Since July?!? Good thing they don't do inspections here.

I'm suprised you could even ask the question of the second officer... I get completely tongue-tied when someone is standing outside my car door with a clipboard in hand and lights flashing away in my rearview mirror! The last time I got pulled over I thought of lots of things I would have liked to have said/asked as I was driving home with my lovely pink paper.
