I had a Farmersville PD, stop me after crossing Lavon, I was doing 67 in a 60.. no big deal, pulled in off the road for our safety, had my license and LTC out with insurance, right away he asked how fast I was doing over the lake, and I replied , what did you clock at. he says I got 78, and I laughed and said no Sir I was doing 67, yadda yadda yadda, he asked about my gun, I showed him that it was in the door, after all the pleasantries... he thanked me for being cooperative and I thanked him. he said Have a nice day. simple pleasantries will take you so much farther.....

You should probably go get some counseling and pet some puppies until it passes.

I too have never had a bad experience with police. A few grumpy ones but, hey, what profession doesn't have those?

Don't mean to take away from your near death experience but I have a question for LEO on here. My wife got stopped on I-30 east of Sulphur Springs. Officer said it was because she didn't have a front license plate. He did not even write her a warning. I suspected he was profiling looking for drug runners. She was driving a BMW M5 with somewhat tinted glass. I'm pretty sure he lost interest when he saw a middle aged woman dressed in business attire. Am I right?

Pretty sure you are supposed to have a front license plate in Texas.

I got a ticket near Dumas for speeding a couple years ago.
I deserved it. It was appropriate. (I should be from DumAss)
It was Robert Earl's fault!

First off, glad it went well. I will probably get flamed for this one but here it goes, a license plate light?? Really? He was fishing, plain and simple. That's just my opinion, and my father in laws, retired DPS with 33 years,,,,,,,

Absolutely he was fishing but hey itís still a requirement. As a retired DPS officer Iím sure you know how many people get pulled over for a simple issue and have a lot more going on than a tail light..

Also thank you for your service.

Yes, it is a requirement. But given there was no warning and he did not even tell her to go get it taken care of, I thought it was just an excuse (albeit a legal one) to pull her over in search of a bigger fish.

I got a warning from DPS for going 7 mph over the 50 mph limit. He could see I just had new tires installed. They are oversized and my speedometer hasn’t been calibrated for it. He couldn’t have been nicer. Professional all the way. I thanked him and went on my way.

Going to the lease a while ago I got pulled over. Cop came to the window And mentioned a trailer light was out and he needed the usual information. I Informed him I had alot of rifles and guns in the car (on way to the lease). He said thats ok keep my hands on the wheel. He left and another cop rolled up as he was coming to my window And said his lights where dim or out. I said we had something in common we laughed he gave me a warning and I was on my way.

He had me dead to rights. But I pull over quickly into a safe place, out of traffic. Put my hands where he could see them and then told him I knew you. He was in the process of handcuffing me when I told him I was joking.

I had a very similar experience a couple weeks ago. Only difference was I left with a speeding ticket! Guilty as charged, I told him to have a good day and he thanked me for being cooperative.

I immediately pull over in a safe location,roll down my windows, shut off my truck, carefully set down my dipped cone, get my licenses out and put my hands on the steering wheel. Now this is where the story gets a little crazy,He approaches the driver side window and begins to talk to me RESPECTFULLY?? So I return the RESPECT by awnswering all question yes sir no sir, I give him all the info that he ask for. I was expecting at any second for him to pull his gun out and start shooting or at least pepper spray me, but it never happened instead he wrote me a warning for a faulty license plate light and also reminded me my insurance card is soon to expire.

He thanked me for being so cooperative and I told him to have a safe night and be careful. Itís a crazy world out there.
You did it all wrong. You're supposed to leave your tinted windows up, drive 1/2 a mile after the lights are on, stop in the left lane, then move forward 100 yards as soon as the officer steps out of his car. When he walks up and knocks on the window (since you're ignoring him), roll it down just a crack and say "What's the problem?"

Always turns into a more "interesting" interaction, and yes, it happens often.

How many license plates does DMV give you when you get new ones? Do you think one is just a spare?

But I've also been known to say, "I stopped you for being a dumba$% in a No dumba$% zone".

Had one pull me over last month for a faulty tail light. Had me wait outside of my Jeep with my kayak hanging out the back and fishing gear. Asked where I was going.

Uhhhh home from fishing! Asked where I was fishing, told em I donít give my spots away. Lol. He laughed.

Taillight came back on while waiting for my warning.
