I wasn't doing shit but I'm in a rural Washington town with Texas plates and I changed lanes too fast. Got lit up.

Cop came up to my door and, when he saw my uniform, said:

"I'm sorry, sir. Didn't realize you were in uniform. Carry on, sir".



Sweet. I love respect.


Being in uniform you might get shot at. But the perks are sweet.

Washington state? Whereabouts?
I'm in Battleground, WA right now. Beautiful country, shitty cops. They're the type of cops that will give you a ticket for having a license plate light out because you pulled in front of them while they were doing 100 mph in a 25 mph zone. That happened to my brother. The cops here are notorious assholes. Both my brothers took great joy in the story of me getting apologized to.

I get it.... no one likes cops.
I like cops, but I don't like Battleground, WA cops. It's a town of about 16,000 people and the cops out here are bored as hell. They will literally, and I'm not joking, ticket you for going 28 in a 25 mph zone. In my experience, big city cops are great. Small town cops are power-obsessed assholes.

Things are a whole lot different as you go up north to the King County or Pierce County area.

Seattle cops are fine. Portland cops are fine as well. It's the little small town cops up there that wish they were big city cops that are the problem. I see the cops around here all the time driving at crazy speeds through the neighborhoods. They're the type that will put their lights on because they don't want to wait for a red light.

From your story, I could tell that there must not be a lot to do there in Battleground. Bored police with little to do = Road-Nazi's. I thought for sure that this thread was going to go police-bashing.

Nah. He was a bored cop that pulled me over because I'm in a small WA town with TX plates. I just found it amusing that he didn't even ask for my license. He just said, "is there anything wrong with your license?". I said, no, and he said, have a good day.

I miss WA everyday. I hate it that I moved away from there to the East Coast.
