Get a restraining order for harassment.

I got pulled over on HW11 in Racine (Next to Regency Mall), a block from where he pulled me over 3 years ago on the same road.

What part of WI are you from?

Haha thats exactly what I was picturing in my head.

I've decided to hack my old 2.5" Enthuza exhaust on it for inspection, as with some ugly wheels I have with plenty of tread. Definately putting a complaint in on this Sheriff, the more I think about his attitude the more I get pissed off, and I know that I am not the only one who he does this to. It is just plain harassment, in the end, whats the worst that will happen. I will get a butt load of non moving violations? Better than the buttload he gets every night

DEFINATELY ordering an electric exhaust cutout in the next few weeks, and a more permenent exhaust..

Genious!

I wonder if that is possible. I am no where near that point yet, but how funny would it be to get a restraining order on a cop..

That'd be a neat trick honestly. I'm not real savvy on law, but I'd imagine it might be possible given the right judge.. Freakin cops..

Ah, I'm not really familiar with Racine. I lived in downtown Milwaukee the last year (college) and my fiance's parents live in Menomonee Falls, so I'm a little bit familiar with the northern suburbs of Milwaukee but that's about it. I currently live about 10 miles from Appleton (Outagamie county) and no emissions testing is required here.

Yeah no emissions here anymore either. I have the car registered being "stored" up north though, since there was still emissions at the time that I registered it.

Just finished looking through every state regulation for motor vehicles. There are a TON of retarded regulations that I can't believe are even in the books.

I'm tempted to read through the regulations myself now. What pisses me off more that stuff like that is that this state will go easy on drunk drivers but that a loud exhaust or shitty tires is worth an hour of their time that could be better spent getting the real hazards taken care of.

Heres the Wisconsin regs, the only two chapters that I found that apply to vehicles in this case.

Chapt. Trans. 305 (This is the specific stuff, exact specs and whatnot) http://www.legis.state.wi.us/rsb/cod...s/trans305.pdf

Chapt. 347 (More general regs that are defined further in TR305)
http://www.legis.state.wi.us/statutes/Stat0347.pdf

No ****? I used to live in Little Chute, then in Waukesha after that. I was in middle school at the time though so I have nothing to share about driving mishaps.

you'll have a hard time proving harassment if he's only pulled you over twice in 3 years. Even more so if the violations were valid and similar.

I am not reporting harassment, I just want to report his conduct and how he implied that I have no one to complain to anymore. I've spoken with a few people in the field of law, and they agree 100% on my side, so I figure I must be somewhat in the right

Funny, I'm actually moving to Kaukauna this weekend, which should put me ~5mins from Little Chute. I keep hearing that Kaukauna smells awful because of the paper mills...I hope it's not too bad. You get any of the stench where you lived?

I'm from Hubertus, went to Germantown schools. Now I attend UW-Stout up in Menomonie and my parents will be moving to West Bend in the coming months. I've pretty much deserved it every time I've been pulled over, though I still refuse to put my front plate on.
