Hey, Ive got a lot of friends in LE. And support the LE on the ground. It's not an easy job, that's for sure. But, when I hear things like this, I just gotta say it's chicken s**t. UNLESS someone is breaking the law, why hassel them for 30min at a time to do a safety check? I have had WAY too many of these damn things in the last few years. It's simply revenue collection at it's worst. Imagine just driving into work and being pulled over every few weeks just to have a damn "safety check". There are mayn ways that the LE can use the tax dollare they are alloted every year.
PS. BTW I have not had a ticket for violations, but the inconvience is a complete PITA.
