Do you get nervous when a police car is behind you?
 
Okay, this morning coming to work I past a State Trooper coming the other direction. He turned around just as I passed him and followed me the rest of the way up the road to a stop sign , a left turn and 2 right turns before he turned away.Followed me for almost 10 mins.I just bet he was hoping for a rolling stop or a swerve into the other lane. Made me nervous as hell. Does it bother you when they follow like that, I mean , okay get close to run the plate, but back off then. He stayed on me the whole time.:rant

No, but he could pull you over to waste your time or because you are speeding. I usually go 5-10 over which is why I do sometimes get nervous when a police car is behind me.

I also hate cars that look like undercover cop cars, most annoying thing ever.

I have a gold card so I can't get tickets but it's just a hassle to deal with them do sometimes I get nervous. It's funny cause once I give them the gold card they get all nice after acting like a dick to me at first

this .. I used to but then I told myself fk it .. you're not up to no good so you have no reason to get nervous .. it's just some stupid irrational programmed fear .. I don't speed anymore .. always go the speed limit and I don't drive recklessly or do any other stupid shit to stick out .. they got nothing on me ..

someone else said .. irritated .. if anything, these days I'll get irritated first before getting nervous .. especially if it seems like they're purposely driving behind you to target you

100% this

On top of that I'm more annoyed. Annoyed at the fact that they have quotas on handing out tickets to generate income for the government. Annoyed at the fact that the effort they put into traffic enforcment is huge but they can't find the guy who robbed my friend's store or broke into my car. Probably because catching REAL criminals doesn't make money for the city. Annoyed by the fact that cops break the rules consistantly on the road with DUI, fukking around on their laptops while driving, and running lights yet they like to target the middle class folk to garnish their wages.

Like I said before, cops are nothing but glorified traffic control officers.

I do, i've had a couple of negative situations in my life with cops. (I've had a gun put to my face, and i've been roughed up, both times having literally none nothing to even warrant being spoken to by the cops.) So i get nervous.

Nothing personal but this is the kind of hypocrisy that makes most people dislike police.
