Stopped by copSubmitted by jglisson on Sun, 08/18/2013 - 03:27
Got stopped by a cop for speeding. It was a speed trap in a construction zone RIGHT around a corner. No time to slow down. And worse, I just switched insurance and didn't get a new card. Well he wrote me a ticket for speeding AND for not having proof of insurance. And the jerk wouldn't even give me enough time to show pull up any proof of insurance on my phone.
Almost all of my friends agree that they don't feel safer around cops. Aren't cops supposed to protect and serve us? Don't they derive their powers from the citizens? Is it normal for people to feel so uneasy around their police?
By the way, if any of you have advice on fighting this bogus ticket (In Tennessee), please give it to me. I've never dealt with a proof of insurance issue before.
