#2 Cops: It’s not a foreign country, it’s a small town!

Here in the city, I often see drivers going five, ten miles over the speed limit.  They’ll even fly passed cops sitting on side-streets clocking their speed.  Don’t do this when you visit a small town.  Small town cops will ticket you.  Go ahead, try to sob, beg, or bargain to the man-in-uniform, it won’t work—even if it’s only for one mile over the speed limit—they don’t care.  Every ticket given means more revenue for their small town.  When I was sixteen, the chief of police of our small town pulled me over.  I may not have gotten a ticket that day, but after his verbal shellacking and the embarrassing phone call he made to my dad, I would have rather paid the fine. So needless to say, tread carefully around those small town boys-in-blue.  They are tough, tough, cookies.

    So true! I had never received a ticket until I went to school in Utah. Then bam! I got 3 of them within a year.
