True, New York City cops will do anything to give a ticket.
Perhaps the truck didn't have the right weight permits. Some cops are really
sticklers about that, especially in New York State.
I remember during the first Gulf War a US Army Abrams tank on a heavy equipment transporter (you know, big lowboy) was heading down the road to a train station and the truck was stopped by a state trooper for not having the right weight permits. See? Cops are awful here!
But here's the kicker: While the crew chief was arguing with the trooper, a friend of mine and the rest of the tank crew fired up the tank, unloaded it, and just drove it down the road
Ok, enough topic derailing with old stories...
