I was going a little over, got a written warning, the second written warning I have ever gotten. Probably a first for the Sheriff to pull over a Lamborghini. I should have asked.

Well at least you just got a warning, I got a ticket for not making an absolute dead still stop at a stop sign.

The officer asked when was the last time I got a ticket. I had no idea. He came back and said it was 2008. I retired in 2004 and before that, I would get tickets pretty regular. I just thought of it as a tax to drive as fast as I wanted to.

Goodness, a tax? Hope no State Troopers are reading this thread. 🚔

I would totally pay extra to get a "no ticket" add on the the license. Or maybe it would be like on your registration and when they ran your plates. That way they wouldn't even bother pulling you over. I know, just wishful thinking.

Sign me up. Or you could make huge campaign contributions and get a set of diplomatic plates. When I was a kid, my dad worked for a company that was very politically connected. He got a badge that he was a special investigator for the alabama atty general . We got pulled over once going fishing going 80. We kids were in the back seat The trooper asked my dad for his license and he flashed the badge. The trooper said sorry for the inconvenience and wished him a nice day. In 1970 Alabama that badge must have meant dont [email protected]#$ with me. I think the owner and his sons had a lot of political influence. He gave the badges out to managers they liked.

I was with a cop friend one night and he was driving and got pulled over. Flashed his badge and off we went. Professional courtesy, then he proceeded to get mad about it because he said "If they would have pulled you over you would have got a ticket" I said yup, but that's OK, no way I would ever be a cop. You should have a get out a jail card.

Then I would have got a different ticket, the last I checked those are illegal in Texas.
Did he mention no front plate?

I have been driving these kinds of cars in Texas for 3 years and have never been stopped for driving without a front plate. I will go one step further I do not stick the registration sticker or toll tag on the windshield rather I laminated it and "stick*" it to the windshield when appropriate. TBH, I just stopped putting on the registration sticker when driving the Huracan over the past three months but have it on the ready.

*adheres to the windshield through the surface tension as needed.

Not a word, which doesn't surprise me. I have been pulled over for no front plate(twice) but in much lesser cars. It seems they let high end cars slide.

I’m a hard no on “season passes” or whatever because every ******* idiot in a clapped out Mustang would have one seriously endangering the public.

Not in West Texas, locals are somewhat okay, however DPS uses it for an opportunity to pull you over. Guess they figure I've stuffed illegals or 100 kilos of whatever in the frunk, though one asked me to open the "trunk" so he could look in the back.

That's funny about the trunk. The officer that pulled me over asked what kind of car it was. He said "I know it's a Lamborghini but what kind?". For the most part law enforcement have been very kind to me. There have been times I didn't notice them and did something sort of unlawful.
