Why do you ***holes have such a hard-on for writing no front plate tickets? The cops could care less, so why do you guys?

I'm just giving you a hard time about the ***hole thing. However, your coworkers have done some seriously stupid stuff. For instance, metered hours end at 7 and my ticket expires at 6:58. One of the stooges stood around and waited for that 2 minute window to write me a ticket.

How does a "parking enforcement officer" even afford an M3? I gotta get me one of those gubmint jobs...

By "good" I mean good. The GTR is powerful and fun but didn't have the same tight steering or throttle response (perceptible turbo lag is there)--might just be a matter of getting used to it. But I'd love to have one in my garage too, even though it's not as good

Telecom engineering, does that mean perhaps VoIP phone manufacturer?

The No Front Plate violation came about after a case that went to the Supreme Court. As far as why "we ***holes" are writing tickets for it, well because it's our job. It's a fixer ticket.

I was debating if I should have posted on this thread revealing my place of employment. .I wasn't going to..but I remembered that because of this job I own one of my dream cars at 24 ( did I mention my 2013 M3 is Jerez Black with carbon fiber roof, DCT - such a swweeet color) ;-)

As far as your story about being cited at 6:58, sorry im not buying it..I know for a Fact that officers dont wait for the ticket to expire..I am NOT calling u a liar, all im saying is that it sounds like something I hear from people everyday.".I didnt pay because I was in there for 2 seconds.."


Anyway, thanks for taking the time to respond to my post..

Happy Driving ///M
