They are troopers, the safest thing is "yes sir/ma'am, no sir/ma'am"

I am not trying to defend cops because they piss me off just the same, I think what bothers me most is their inconsistency in enforcement, but you have to understand how dangerous a traffic stop can be for them. The least of their trouble is getting hit by a passing car, especially on 495 (I drive 128 every day), their biggest worry is some wacko pulling a gun on them. The best bet is to oblige, and fight it in courst if warranted.
