I'm "good" with the directional signals: I leave them on all the time to keep others guessing.

Very Happy

Rudy Giuliani famously adopted "The One Broken Window" philosophy, and dragged the millions of Noo Yawkers into Civility.  Maybe you didn't like spending salaries on otherwise-idle or bumbling LEOs, but it worked famously!

Outerlimits wrote:I get what you are saying NH but I would rather have the Marine Patrol looking out for yahoos that are truly causing public safety hazards.   Think about it, if the MP stopped these two and cited both.  The state would get what???  300 bucks???  And it would probably take up an hour, maybe an hour and a half of the officer’s time.   That time could have been spent deterring behavior that really is a hazard to public safety.
NHMP MAY lose money on every stop, but it doesn't mean that cruising past such infractions benefits Safety.

Now that cracked me up, NH!!!


Would you guys be a little kinder to each other. It's not fair to name names and groups or call each other names. Course I am not a moderator now since the hacking. Still, I want this forum to be a little nice.
