    Yes...and I might add, do not rest your elbow on the window door frame...and if you do, when the officer commands you to move your elbow off the door, do NOT ask him "why"?

    "Why" is not a good question to ask a cop at any time. It really annoys them...:)

    Its amasing the stupid things a cop can do on a routine traffic stop, too.
    An expired tag does not warrant pointing a gun at the driver, for example.

    Sorry but public servants get asked "why".

    "Why did you pull me over, I wasn't speeding."

    "Why do you want to search my car? And of course you may if you have a warrant."

    "Why do you need to see my ID?"

    No PC, no question is unreasonable.

    Well, I gotta ask you, "Why is putting your elbow on the window door frame a problem?"

    It was the only thing this particular state cop could think of to order me around about I guess. When I asked him why he just said "because I told you to"...:rolleyes:

    No, it was the apartment complex sandwiched between Countyline and the 470, about a third of a mile east of University. My folks live very nearby. Nice bike trail behind the complex; I’ve run there many times.
