The only catch 22 I see in this is the fact generally police consistantly speed on highways and secondary roads. Having been a military police officer myself, I know its against Florida law for any law enforcement officer to speed unless running code. When running code, they're limited to no more than 10 mph over the limit. In addition, before they can run code, they're required to be EVOC certified, meaning that if a police officer hits you, they're general at fault, as they've had advanced vehicle handling. This does not mitigate the requirement to move out of their way when running code. I see no honesty in police writing more tickets. The routinely let other off the hook for violations they'd be more than willing to throw you or I into jail for. This clearly violates the law as well as our civil rights. While some police are very honest and hard working, I've found over the years that most are more than willing to speed regardless of what vehicle they in. When I see one going down the road doing exceeding the speed limit I'll fall in behind, doing the same speed. If they attempt to ticket me, they can explain to their supervisor why I refuse to sign the ticket. Police are regular people just like you and I, so there's no reason to be scare of them, a reaction they expect from the general public. I've had them try scare tactics on me several times to no avail. AND I REFUSE TO SIGN ANY TICKET GIVEN FOR THE PURPOSE OF RAISING MONEY, as this too, is illegal. As an American, I simply refuse to give in to abuses placed on the motoring public by local and state governments when they violate my civil rights. Hence, I keep a Hero camera inside my vehicle will record any officer who pulls me over, as I've the same right to record them as they do me. Don't believe them when they try to tell you otherwise, and they will. Don't get me wrong. For the most part, I've got
