During the press conference Sunday, Louisiana State Police Commissioner Col. Lamar Davis informed the local media that Anderson stopped Kittling for having a window tint violation and a modified exhaust.

In all my travels and hours on the road, I’ve never seen a lifted, coal-rolling pickup truck pulled over. But import cars and American muscle cars with tinted windows, driven by minorites make up the majoriy of vehicles I see pulled over.

That’s not even structural racism; it’s just racism.

Ditto the south side of Chicago: pickup trucks driven by white men on boulevards, clearly marked “no trucks”? Never stopped. Meanwhile, POC driving older cars don’t dare go 1/2-mile over the speed limit.

Thinking back to how many times I drove my truck on Lake Shore Drive or Michigan Avenue. Lots, thats how many.

that generally means no commerical trucks, and often it exempts for local deliveries. they’re trying to keep heavy semis off the road is my understanding

No, it means all B-truck plates (which pickup trucks must have, even if they’re not work vehicles) and any commercial work vans too.

Barring a tow truck needing to get to a car – and I once got yelled at because my tire blew out just BEFORE an exit which meant he had to get on much further back to get to me – or park district vehicles, the rules are strict. They’re not enforced, but they are strict!

ahg. sorry about that. i know sometimes those kinds of signs can mean different things in different places. i definitely should have phrased my statement in the form of a question especially as i’m not the one who lives there!

That’s gotta be a local thing. I have a full sizes pickup, and it is treated like any other car in terms of plates and restrictions.

The good news is, the person apologized and left the position as a result. But still…
