So do you think now that I got the big ole handicap deal in the window and my registration and insurance both say I'm handicapped, do you think the cop would be more lineant in the event I get pulled over?



I have a whole new realm of excuses.



"Sorry officer, I just got this left foot pedal installed in my car, I'm still getting used to keeping the car at one speed since my cruise control is broken. I'll pay closer attention to the speedometer. "

hopefully the cop does not notice the HUD

Perhaps, my wife is a paraplegic who is in a wheelchair and drives a highly modified Grand Caravan, she got pulled over last month for not coming to a full stop and didn't get a ticket.

The two times I got pulled over for speeding while driving her van I didn't get a ticket but a week later I get pulled over in my Bonneville and got slapped with a 17 over.

It may depend on the vehicle too, a modified van they may be easy on you but a regular vehicle maybe not.

Oh, and good luck with the handicap parking spaces. You're going to start noticing how many people have their Grandmother'* rear view mirror card. @#$%.... don't get me started.
