What’s your stance on professional courtesy, in regards to traffic violations? (I am aProfessional CITY FF 15 YEARS). I have been let go more times then I should have....my xwife was with me one time complaining about my speeding 95ish....”I hope you get a ticket..”. Sure enough not 5 minutes after that comment I got pulled over. I never lie when cops pull me over and ask ‘do you know why.....etc”. Yes because I was speeding, officer “yup I got you going 89”.....me:....”I thought you got me at 95 for sure, but I’ll take 89”. I hand the officer my license and FIREFIGHTER identification, mean while my xwife clearly communicates to the officer that he should give me a ticket, long story short.... he didn’t. She was nothing but a C U Next Tuesday for the rest of the night.....

The only thing I can’t stand is when an officer gets on his soap box and tells me how wreckless I am etc.... I could have hurt someone .......bro, clam your ass down, I’ve seen just as much tragedy as you have maybe even more. He threatened to call my chief, (a chief at the time I couldn’t stand, complete asshole) That interaction fired me up...I became a dick and asked him to stop talking and just give me a ticket, he should have, and for the life of me I can’t understand why he didn’t.

I was a super dick head another time to local beach cops......I was drinking (was the passenger in my own car (X5M)letting my buddy drive it who ended up with a DUI, 3 officers gave 3 different reasons for pulling my buddy over, this fired me up and I was, to say the least, less then cooperative. The next day I discussed what happened with my buddy who is a police captain for the city I work for....again long story short..... I was completely out of line and wrote personal apology letters to each officer at that scene, went hat in hand to their police station to hand deliver them. I’m not their favorite person but the letters did help my situation, it’s few and far between officers get a letter from a person they had a difficult interaction with stating their behavior was unacceptable. This is just after the same local beach police officers had pulled me over for speeding and gave me professional courtesy.

I give professional courtesy majority of the time unless the action is egregious. I give a lot of passes to civilians too, so my latitude is deployed fairly.

As for your attitude….


….at least you attempted to make amends. That's more than I can say for some people.

Did you guys use the single shot 40mm too? We used it a lot in custody and Sgts. carried them in the field along with pepperball guns. Now we'll all have the 40mm when we go 10-8.

Yes we did...same ones we use for corrections. The station was only issued a few of them so certain deps who went to the class can go 10-8 with one.

Curious if the new cars with automatic cruise control emit a signal that interferes with radar/lidar?

Police speed radar works in the K and Ka band, roughly 24ghz to 36ghz.
Police lidar uses infrared laser at 904nm wavelength.

Adaptive cruise control uses a 77ghz frequency.
ACC lidar works in the 850-950 nm range.

So, there should be no interference.

If you own a Hyundai, be mindful that they are easy to steal. Gangsters like to steal them, do dirt and then ditch them.

By degrees of separation it was like friends, family, neighborhood, etc "network". Can't seem to find the study for the US, just the one done in Sweden.

That wont prevent me from getting chased by a weirdo after deboarding but at this moment an appropriate question from my side: Where are the security at the airport when such things happens?
