Round Two!


It’s perfectly legal provided you have your FOP sticker prominently displayed.



Colorado law says “The driver of a motor vehicle, when reasonably necessary to ensure safe operation, shall give audible warning with the horn but shall not otherwise use such horn when upon a highway.”

“Excuse me: Am I under arrest? Are you going to write me a ticket? Then do it. I’m a busy person and I don’t have time for you to get upset because your actions are creating a hindrance on the road.

You are one wise-crack away from murder.

Pantone Range of Acceptable Murders?



Yeesh, you would think he would learn how to drive between now and then.


This guy is really calm and collected for the cop’s asshole bullshit.

“You need to understand that what you did was wrong!” = the problem with cop entitlement, all in one phrase.

(edit to add: You’re not the goddamn upholder of moral virture, badge-jockey, you’re just a douche who was engaging in unsafe driving behavior)


Shouldn’t you deposit this into the Danger! Danger! thread?
