My gripe is drivers who don’t turn their headlights on when it’s foggy. Measly parking lights just don’t make a vehicle visible enough. Or how about drivers who don’t turn on their headlights when their wipers are in use? THAT’S A STATE LAW! However, the police can’t stop anyone for not complying with that law … go figure that one out?


Smoking Pot.

They say it’s to relieve pain? Can’t they make a pill with the ingredients in the marijuana plant? It certainly would be better, as it would not cause lung cancer or COPD, a lung problem.

When I see these marijuana stores on TV with the large display of various kinds and tastes of marijuana, I wonder if there is not more to it than just medical relief? Maybe it’s an excuse to enjoy the smoke?


Cars with blacked out windows.

If I were a cop, I would not like to approach a car that I stopped that had blacked out driver’s window. There is a law against that. The officer has to see in the vehicle. Some people take off the darkened paper to have their vehicle inspected and then replace it. If you see a car with the driver’s window blackened so you can’t see in, take the registration number and give it to the police. Hopefully the officer will issue a ticket, and maybe even take a photo with his cell phone as evidence for court.
