So my two buddies are cruising down the Palisades Parkway (runs through NY into North Jersey for a short little bit). They get pulled over. Cop tells them they were both doing 74 in a 50. So the cops got them waiting and waiting and waiting forever. My friend recognizes the cop. A while back he fell asleep at the wheel after djing late night and drove into the woods on the Palisades Parkway. Only thing saving him from death was the tree he hit. Two weeks after that accident he gets a ticket in the mail, not sure exactly what it was but it was because he fell asleep at the wheel basically. I see that as a **** cop..Sorry I know he shouldnt have drove tired but sometimes you dont realize how tired you really are. Anyway the cop finally comes back and gives my one friend 3 tickets, speeding, not having his license on him, and failure to display his plate (he made a license plate mount and it wasnt holding well so he put it in the storage area on the bike). The cop tells him he's free to go...Then he looks at my other friend and tells him to turn around that he was arrested. He only had his permit and in Jersey you cant use a NY permit, even though he was with a licensed rider, and they just happened to be in the Jersey part of the road at this point. Neither of them had any clue about that. Neither did I. I rode in NY with my Jersey motorcycle permit and got a ticket and the cop never said anything about it. Well he got 2 tickets and had to post $500 bail. They told me there's no way they were going 75. They preach to me about never going over 70 on that road ever so I believe them. Oh well, what can you do about a **** cop. Nothing.

Ask nicely to see his radar...

Plead innocent and see the cop in court..If he shows up..
Most of the time those punk ass cops dont show up.

I heard it is really hard to radar bikes anyway..Going in and out of traffic..

Same two guys. I know with those two bikes you probably think they were racing or something but nah...They preach about that road and how fast to go. Lots of cops and places for them to hide. I'm pretty sure they're gonna fight it, plead innocent and go to court. They never asked to see his radar.

I've heard many debates over this. I've heard people say it doesn't matter if the radar says whatever and I've heard if it the radar is in error to what the police officer quotes then its invalid. Does ANYONE on this earth have a DIRECT answer to this?

I didnt think they were racing, I think that the cop probably saw a Busa and thought they were racing. ... ****, if a cop sees more than one bike riding close to each other they think we are racing. I hate tickets.

Thats what I'm sayin. Some cops are just dicks. I'd also like to know about the radar question. I think we all know some cops. I'll phone my uncle and post his answer to this.
Yeah, you're right some cops are dicks and have nothing better to do but write taffic tickets. I work in the busiest area of Orlando and I can't tell you the last time i wrote a self-initiated ticket(We pretty much have to write a ticket to the at fault driver in a crash though). For me, I hate traffic enforcement, and I mean hate it. I would much rather take someone to jail for beating up his wife/girlfriend than some bs taffic. Having said that, I go to a lot of motorcycle crashhes that involve riders that are driving way too fast and over their ability, so I can see that there a need for some enforcement epecially in populated areas w/ a lot of traffic.

Weston, CT has the biggest dickhead police force in the country. I met a cop from Ridgefield, CT and he told me that the douche bag cops in Weston have actually given him and other cops on his force speeding tickets.......wtf, actually ticketing fellow cops.

I agree wholeheartedly. So the cop had to write the ticket when my friend fell asleep though? I know it's probably an infraction but did he 100% have to write it? And would you have written it? I just cant see taking someone to jail because he was driving with a permit in the wrong state. I mean he has no priors, no arrests, nothing. Clean driving record too, a wife and two kids and now he's gotta deal with that crap. If I was a cop I would come down the hardest (traffic wise) on DWI, DUI and just dangerous and wreckless drivers.
Also can a person ask for a radar slip in your state?

In MA you have no right to see the radar reading. Think about it this way...The radar unit has no picture of you vehicle, all it shows is a speed reading. So, once you see the radar screen coudn't your arguement at that point become "How do i know that's my speed and not another vehicle that you shot with it five minutes ago?" That's not an argument you want to fight a ticket with either, it's the cops word. I would assume this is similar in other states.

I have a question for you guys. When you call a plumber, Mechanic, carpenter, tv repair man, electronic installer, maid, stock broker, cable man, ect....ect.....ect..... for something, do you also call them name and hate them for doing there jobs to? I know what happened sucks and I don't necessarily agree with it but the cop was just doing his job. He didn't do anything that the law did not allow him to do. I would not have handled it like that but doesn't make him wrong. If he wants to be by the letter of the law then so be it. Don't hate the cops. Hate the ones who make the stupid laws we have to enforce. You guys need to lighten up a bit. Damn, I should have been a fireman. Everyone loves those damn firemen.

I dont think anybody here hates cops in general...Just dickhead cops. It's obvious this guy hates life, maybe his wife cheated on him cause he's always at work, or he's one of those waaaay to stressed out cops. I say if a plumber or any one of those guys you mentioned could have done me a favor and didnt overcharge me when he knew he could, or gotten me a better price on a stock, or made my house cleaner instead of rushing out of it, I say that they're dickheads too. I could see the tickets, but arresting somebody for that is ridiculous. I dont give a **** what the law was he should have given him one of those police scoldings and told him to drive straight into NY. They were barely in Jersey anyway, they were going the direction of NY on the highway. That guys a straight up *******.

BTW

Cool cop example:

Currently I dont have a registration on my car. And I knew it and drove sometimes anyway. Well I was on my way home the other day and I got pulled over. He saw my registration had expired and I told him I'm very sorry and I spoke to him and told him my circumstances that I just had a kid and I couldnt afford the tow and other charges. Well he came back and told me he was doing me a favor and just writing me up for the ticket of not having my proper documents. He was supposed to have my car towed. Instead he told me I could park my car in the parking lot I pulled into and I could come get it when I got my registration. I spoke to him in a honest and professional way and he acted like a human being not an invincible superhuman that has a badge and a gun, which by the way is how at least 75% of the cops I interact with are...assholes.

Thats also ridiculous. I would pull up to them and look at them and tell them to have a nice day. Unless they had an expired plate, or no insurance or something..then maybe I'd have them follow me home or I'd escort them home and tell them to take care of that. But sitting them on the sidewalk is just not right.

You were driving by? How do you know it was a traffic stop? How do you know that they were not broke down? Maybe he was getting ready to change there tire for them. And you just called him a d**k for it. If you were just driving by then you dont know whats going on. I am not defending what the cop did. Like I said...."I WOULD NOT HAVE DONE IT THAT WAY". I just dont like it every time I hear a "I got a ticket thread" I here pigs,punks, D**ks, and everything else. I wish all of you could walk in a cops shoes for a week and then maybe you would all understand a little more. You guys think that law enforcement agencys run ads in the paper saying A$$holes wanted or something. Some of you have very bad additudes towards cops. Don't get pissed for getting a ticket 70/55 and then come here cryin about it. Ask yourselves this. If every cop in the U.S. went on strike for one week, what would happen? Not a pretty picture huh? Don't hate the player, hate the game. Black 600RR, this was not all directed at you.

Yep, and if every cop went on strike for that week people would just chase you down beat your A$$ and take your bike. "Hey the cops are on strike, we wont get in trouble".
