Yo, dummy! It is the 4th of July. Heavy police presence. Reader Boards reading, "DUI Enforcement. The Heat Is On". Informal bets among the officers as to who writes the most citations. Day by day desk warriors pissed of to be back in a Patrol car for the holiday. Not a good time to draw attention to yourself. Speeding, tailgating, weaving in and out of traffic just draws attention to you. Even hardcore scofflaws like myself know it is time to chill.
Went to a family gathering today; about a 70 mile round trip. Light traffic moving along just over the speed limit. Knuckleheads everywhere. Po po everywhere issuing good citizen citations. Bubba, if you got a ticket today your earned it. Doesn't matter if you are stone sober, you did something to draw attention to yourself.
Lots of political discussions today. Think most of us believed this is appropriate,
