Got busted last night in my cage...LONG

So last night I left the gym and since it was nice out I decided to crank my windows down (thank god) and cruise through the city to go home, well about a mile from my house I past a local cruiser that was in a parking lot with no lights on, I wasn't speeding or anything but as soon as I passed him the headlights came on and out he came. He wasted no time turning on the blues so I pulled over.

Well it started off with him asking for my license and registration, I explained to him that I didnt have my license on me since I dont like to carry my wallet to the gym out of paranoia that someone will swipe my cash...he didnt like that too much. He then told me he pulled me over because I have a modified exhuast and modified suspension.....and sure enough out came the tape measurer. He said to me "see your below the limit by quite a few inches" then looked at me waiting for my response, I just shrugged my shoulders and said "yep, cant really argue with that your right" then he said "and youy exhaust is modified also" as he pointed to the dual tips coming out the rear...once again I just shrugged my shoulders and said "yep cant argue about that either"

He went back to his car to start the process when another cruiser pulled up, now I'm thinking great tow truck is on the way and one of these guys is driving me home...well after about 40mins on the side of the road he came back to me and said "Sorry about the wait heres your registration raise this thing back up and put your exhaust back on" before he walked away the words "raise this thing back up" struck my mind so I asked "can I ask you a question, is airbag suspension legal in NH" to my suprise he said yes.... So looks like my trackbike is on hold and another project is on the way.

I have to admit I was very pissed last night but after thinking about it, he was just doing his job and he was pretty cool about the whole situation...so now I'm just pissed about the lame laws in NH...who wants their bumper 16" off the ground

Re: Got busted last night in my cage...LONG

So what if your car already comes superlow from the factory and with a loud exhaust? I never understood why the factories get away with it. Same thing with tinted windows...

Re: Got busted last night in my cage...LONG

Yea, I don't understand the tinted window either. Apparently there is a certain grade or level that's acceptable but doesn't look like anyone follows it. And as I recall, it's a safety factor for law enforcement (pointing a gun without being seen?).

As far as the exhaust, I wish, truly wish, they'd pull some of these ridiculous Harleys over.

This is a problem the Subaru STi's are running into. Stock they come with...go figure...an STi exhuast. So from the showroom they already are about as loud as some of the mid-volume aftermarket exhausts. A few new owners have already been pulled over, but it gets dismissed once it's clear that it's factory equiptment. They also are getting flak over the OEM rear wings on the evo's and STi's.

Re: Got busted last night in my cage...LONG

I have a '98 S10 pick up, it didnt exactly come like it is from the factory, I have a 3" drop in it all the way around, windows tinted to 35% driver & passenger door included, big in NH, and an aftermarket dual exhaust system on it.... I have no leg to stand on when I get pulled over (usually every couple weeks) so I dont bother arguing, I just say "Yep your right" I'll see if I can post a few pics after work.

Doesn't sound too radical to me...sounds like you're getting "profiled".

That truck scrapes it's nuts it's so low. Handles like a dream though. You see X if you had the airbags in it at the time he said to "raise this thing back up", you could have just flicked the switch and presto-chango LIFTED. As far as the exhaust goes, it's not half as loud as those damn Fast and Furious cars all over AZ. I think I'm gonna start carry a set of big azz pliers so when I see one parked I can just pinch the tip closed... . You need to post some pics man, I haven't seen that thing in almost a year. Gotta see it with the new painted stuff too.

{edit}About the tinting thing...just tell him you have very sensitive eyes and the sun hurts them . How's that tint job holding up anyways..gotta get my car done and think I'll bring to the same place you did.
