    The law is the law. I honestly don't mind the zero tolerance laws that exist, cause minors don't have any business drinking alcohol in the first place. Following the rules isn't hard, I mean... I don't even touch my keys when I drink a beer with my dad.

    At another McDonald's (this one in Philly), some woman who was very incoherent and appeared to be high and/or had mental problems asked me for a ride as I was leaving with the order. I just said "I gotta go" and head out the door...

    Like I am really going to let some drugged-up stranger in my truck!

    Well....that could be said for ANY law.

    Fact is, it's illegal to drink under the age of 21. Not hard to avoid being "turned" into a criminal. Don't underage drink. Don't want a speeding ticket? Don't speed.

    Not a difficult concept.

    Sad, but true...

    I've been threatened with having the cops called on me over parking in Doylestown at least FOUR DIFFERENT TIMES.

    I've had so many confrontations with people over parking in Doylestown (regardless of whether or not I was threatened with police involvement), that I have lost count.

    Yeah. I do it legally under the supervision of an adult. Two different things. I doubt your friend was drinking with her parents.

    I blame MADD. Their sole purpose originally was to raise awareness about the dangers of drunk driving. Now they've devolved into neo-prohibitionist lobbyists.

    Also, I honestly don't think people's lives need to be ruined over crimes where nobody get hurt.

    For example, I've heard of someone's legally-purchased vehicle being seized just because the cops caught them picking up a prostitute.

    I just think the fine was a bit steep, and where's that money going?

    I just think that the government and law enforcement should be held to higher standards and have a much stricter burden of proof.

    @ALI3N_123

    I once got suspended in middle school for "assaulting" a school bully when he 100% deserved, and most recently a sheriff's deputy lied to a cop in order to slap me with a ticket, so yeah, I'm a bit jaded.

    And also, that incident with your dad and his Frontier years ago...

    If I ended up handcuffed in the back of a squad car because some cop thought MY TRUCK was stolen, I'd sue the police department.

    Vehicles have these little things called license plates and VINs. A quick run of the license plate and the driver's license would confirm ownership, and if the cop still wasn't sure, then run the fucking VIN! No need to traumatized an innocent part by handcuffing them.

    Also, I think the various motor vehicle codes of this country should differentiate between "speeding" and actually speeding. For example, 5 MPH over in Pennsylvania is treated as a parking ticket and the driver receives no points. Anything 6 MPH and above can result in 3 to 4 points.

    I got pulled over for 43 in a 25 and would have gotten 4 points on my license in addition to having to pay an exhorbitant $180 fine if I'd merely pled guilty. I fought the ticket and got it knocked down to 5 over, which resulted in no points.

    In Pennsylvania, I believe anything above 15 MPH over the speed limit is considered reckless driving, which I think is a whole different charge than speeding.

    As a rule of thumb, if you don't go more than 15 MPH over the posted limit, cops look the other way.

    In New York, I believe it's possible to get points on your license for 2 MPH over.

    He handcuffed my dad for our safety. It's the law. The court will rule in his favor cause he's doing his job.

    Your dad also does not have Aspergers Syndrome...

    What happened to "Just stay in the car and keep your hands where I can see them"?
