I really hate these inspections. They are clearly unconstitutional.
I have been through 4 of those. Interestingly they were all within a few years of each other. Twice was on Hwy. 90. I got waved through as they were only stopping every 5th or whatever it was cars.
The 3rd time was on Hwy. 2. I am not sure what they were doing but they clearly were not really checking, as he quickly glanced at my DL and waved me through. He did not check anything else at all.
The 4th was a bit amusing. It was on Hwy. 179 and traffic was really slow. I would guess maybe a car every few minutes. The trooper looked at my DL then turned to the other patrolman and said “look at this”. I was driving an old 1978 LTD. The seat belts were too short so I had cut one off one of the rear belts and tied it in a square knot so it would fit.
The other trooper looked at the seat belt, they both laughed and sent me on my way.
I think both times I was stopped, they were looking for something and were just stopping cars as an excuse for what ever it was they were after.
They were checking out the seat belts on hot babes!
“I need to shine the flash light through the front windshield, maam, to make sure your seat belt is on correctly. Please move your right leg a little to the right. A little more, please. Now your left leg to the left. There we go. Thank you, maam, for your co-operation. You may proceed.”
“Hey, Bill! You shoulda’ seen this one! She wudn’t wearin’ no panties! Woo-Hoo!”
My wife called me one night here in Knoxville, Tn. area to tell me she was stopped at one of these stop and search sites while coming home from visiting friends about 11 o’clock at night. She flat out refused to give the officer her license and registration, and told him he had no business stopping her while she was driving home and not breaking any laws. I fully expected her to be calling me to come pick her up at the jail after she had been detained; but she said the officer let her go on her way. I couldn’t believe it! True Story
