I got pulled over on 580 near the Oakland Zoo. He made me exit and pulled me over on the street. I guess the freeway was too noisy for him. He was disappointed that my ehxuast was quiet after hearing me fire it up. But while he was "educating" me about aftermarket exhausts, this car drives by that has a really loud exhaust. He tells me "See, that's an illegal exhaust. Way too loud!" I was thinking, why don't you get back in your car and pull him over? Damn it. He asked me if my exhaust was a Greddy exhaust. I said they don't do BMW tuning. I guess he didn't like that answer because he immediately asked me about my front windows because my rears were tinted 50%. He told me to roll my windows up. So I did. He then writes me a ticket for my windows in the front. He also warned me that that this is no longer a simple fix-it ticket. It's not a moving violation but the fines are heftier. Let's just say I wasn't in the mood for lunch after that. It was noon when this happened.

Man that is so lame. Did you ask him if they enforce the noise rules with all of the Harley riders? That really ticks me off, because around here, the Harley guys have got people buying into their claim that their loud pipes actually makes it safer for them to ride in traffic because it makes auto/truck drivers more aware of their presence. Is that bullshit or what?
