I know they are a few Police Officers on these forums so I am sure I will get some nice answers. Who exactly will Cops not give speeding tickets, moving violations etc.. to? Besides for other police Officers. I ask this for two reason, first I have a friend who brother is a cop at a local police department and he has been pulled over about 4 times in the past few months but he gets off every time because he has a little badge from the local police department saying he is a officer brother. Also a few days ago I got off from being yelled at from a police officer for not making a right turn in a right turn only lane in Miami Traffic. The officer yelled at two cars in front of me and was coming to my car but took a look at my Florida Sheriff Association Plate which is my front plate and just waved me away.

Anyway here is a list of people I think would not get a speeding ticket. Any others? Any should be taken off?
Any Police Officer.
And Federal Authority figure, CIA, Sercret Service, FBI, ATF ect..
Firefighters and Paramedics.
Military Personnel
Doctors or atleast this is what a police officer once told me.
People driving cars with those Council plates from different countries embassy and consulates.
High government officials, Mayors, city managers, commissioners etc.
Judges
District Attorneys.
And the last one I thought of was an Airline Pilot in uniform? If they can fly a plane they should be able to drive a car at 73mph in a 55 zone right?

I'll gladly ticket any of the above . . . without hesitation or reservation.

Everyone else, depends on the situation.

Well, there's such a thing as diplomatic immunity to consider here. However, the cop should be giving the ticket to the offender, even though they won't have to pay it.

Well, those big-ass sunglasses probably made it harder for the cop see if she was about to cry. And saying "That's hot" after finding out she failed the breathalizer probably doesn't help either  rotfl

Not true, a buddy of mine was pulled over for speeding, he was going maybe 10mph over (I think it was a 40 zone)

He is in the military and is going over to Iraq soon, he asked the cop if he wanted both state issued ID and military ID, then mentioned that he is going to Iraq soon and wasn't sure if he could show up to court to pay the ticket-cop still gave him a ticket.

None of what he said was false.

Why not? Just because they can fly a bus, doesn't mean they can drive safety? Military pilots(normally fighter pilots) are another breed, they just think they are invincible and sometimes there driving behaviors shows it.

In short everyone is treated the same. (of course if a police officer told me who he was prior to writing the ticket..)

I got away with one in Florida once when I was still living down there. I was doing 110 on I 75 in my old 87 IROC II and I happened to be in my pilots uniform, I was between SRQ and Mantee SR64 someplace and I got paced by the cop after passing him (it was a grey unmarked impala) and he asked me why I was speeding excessively. He looked down and saw my uniform and askied if I was a pilot. I was smart and didnt get sarcastic like I might have and said yes. He asked if I was headded to work and I came up with a BS story that I was running late to get to TPA when in reality I had just left SRQ and was headded to the girlfriends house of the time for a romp. He said take it easy nice car and sent me on my way after a fast conversation about flying.

US Senators and Congress members or their drivers, if they are on their way to Washington DC or to the capital from their DC area residence. IIRC, it is covered in the US Constitution, that they are not to be impeded while in transit to the capital to conduct official business, especially a critical vote. This is to prevent improper holding of a member to affect the vote on a piece of legislation. Usually even off duty, they may get away with getting tickets, but will get them if DUI, or driving at well above the limit.

Probably especially if they give you the "Do you know who I am!" treatment...  Wink

In Berlin about 15 years ago a very high ranking police officer in plain clothes in his private car was stopped by two traffic cops for a high exceedence of the speed limt. He tried to pull rank on them and threatened them. Nevertheless they gave him the ticket, which would mean a stiff fine and several months loss of driving licence and additionally reprted him to internal affairs. AFAIK he shortly lost his job afterwards or was demoted.

During a riot in Berlin-Kreuzberg in the late 1980s three leading police staff officers in plain clothes, who wanted to watch the police riot control operation got beaten up by a squad of riot police. Since back then the riot police officers had the habit of (illegally?) covering the unit badges on their uniforms and they were wearing full riot gear with body armour, helmets and visors down, the the high ranking officers could not identify those who gave them the baton treatment. It is suspected that the culprits knew exactly whom they had in front of them and used the ooportunity to settle old scores with their superiors...  Silly

Those are the best ones to ticket. Remember: complaints mean you are working. Some officers make a point of warning fat chicks because they never get breaks.

And BTW. Paris is not pretty.

I have seen a mayor get a ticket. He seemed to think he should get a slide because he was a mayor, that made damn sure he was getting the ticket.

As true as this was, you have no idea how many people tell that story and are lying. That is why I always try to make conversation and sniff for the lie. Also, in all fairness, 10 over is probably the officers personal cutoff for writing the ticket no matter who it is or what their situation. In an attempt to be fair to everyone most officers have personal guidelines for what they write no matter what. Also, it is trained some (most?) places they should make the decision to write or warn before they get to the window. Some are more flexible on that decision than others.

Wrong. I dont know how it works in the US, but doctors here are treated like any one else, except in a situation where the doctor can prove he/she was attending a medical emergency.

But most of the cops here are pretty cool, and will understand the situation if your explanation is reasonable..and will let you off with a warning (I know this from personal experience on 3 different occasions Big grin )

Big negative on this one. My uncle has about 4 speeding tickets (he drives a M5) in the last 6 months. He'll be tooling home from work and get zapped. He's doing deferred adjudication right now for the current ticket.

Personally I think nobody should get special treatment. If you break traffic laws you should pay the consequences. Driving unsafely is totally dangerous even if you think you have special privileges in society. Granted another officer won't give one of his colleagues a ticket while they are driving the family sedan--unless he is doing something totally dangerous and illegal (DUI for example).

I am really surprised about some of the answers I seen since I know that this is not the case in Miami atleast. I have a 18 year old friend who got off from doing 85 in a 55 just because his brother is a police officer. I know another person who got off from doing 75 in a 55 for his father being a police officer. I know for sure that Firefightersand Paramedics and other police officers just about never get any speeding tickets. I even got off of a possible ticket just because I have a front plate which only people who deal with law enforcement have or people who give alot of money to law enforcement.
Maybe things are just different where I am? But these are just stories which I have heard from Police Officers and others who have gotten out of the speeding tickets. Ofcourse I am not talking about DUI or anything that serious in nature.
