::shurgs:: around here, if you take the chance by not coming to the stop, you take the chance of them writing you up a 150 dollar ticket.
generally speaking it's easier to just stop. I mean it's not like he's in the wrong by doing his fucking job. Unless you're going to protest the fact there was a big red sign with STOP written on it..
I'm not sure why people still think I'm contesting the legallity of the situation, rather than the bizzare "Well, I was going to give you a warning, but-" issue. That's what I'm on about. Why mention that you were going to give me a warning, but then pull out an excuse that makes no contextual sense? Did he want a bribe, or for me to beg for a warning? I wouldn't have even bothered to post if he just gave me the citation, but this circumstantial nonsense is what made me angry. Strictly speaking, every traffic law you break "endangers someone" (which is the theoretical reason the law was made). It just makes me question motive.
