That back of my truck is coming together nicely. My new United States Coast Guard license plate has come in and I got a low number as expected. So my truck now outwardly professes my thoughts on a few things. I am a Harley owner, a NRA Life Member and a Coast Guard Veteran.
I was thinking, what does a cop think when approaching my truck? Does he think, "He has a gun?" Does he couch out by saying that he is a Veteran, or does he think, "Crazy Veteran with a Gun?" Does he get indigestion as he sees the the Harley stickers/Veteran references and NRA allegiances?
So far I have never been pulled over in the truck. I have been on a good run with not getting pulled over, last time was in winter in the old Bronco 2. Might have been late 80;'s early 90's. I got a ticket for "Driving to Fast For Conditions!" I went to court and beat it! I told the judge, if I was in 4 wheel drive and going to fast, what was the trooper doing to catch me in 2 wheel? The judge laughed and dismissed it.
Cop was 24, I was late 30s.
