are they put there for intimidation or special treatment
What was the effect on you personally?
Oh I think you mean this one, yes I have one on each car.
Blue lines, spam, police hats in rear windows, and on and on. Lots of cars with these things on them.
this would be a better sticker, that way cops don't think that you are trying to suck up to them and we got something in common. I think that "DD employee of the month" bumper sticker would work even better.
Shoot, I got a good story involving a police union sticker.... can't tell it here.
If you are not a police officer or related to one, police might take a very dim view of you having a thin blue line sticker on your car.
They're naturally to say " yea we support cops so don't ticket us." Or their mothers uncles cousin is a cop so he told me to put this on my car. Same principle. They mean diddly for the most part.
People these days are just too easily triggered. It would not surprise me to see someone get their car keyed because of a sticker on it that some other ass fat found disagreeable. I roll stickerless these days. Why invite the headache.
My guess they are both trying to intimidate normies, and butt kiss up to actual cops. I would be concerned a cop would take a dim view of such a sticker on my car, thinking he might assume I am trying to appropriate myself some cop status when I am not.
do you mean like this
Massachusetts State Police - Triangle Sticker
For butt-kissing please don't ticket me purposes, and I'll bet it actually leads to a statistically lower chance of getting a ticket (when combined with being nice)
People can get butthurt about it... and clearly do... but I can tell you that a VAST majority of guys don't give a shit about stickers whatsoever. I don't have any on any of my cars, my families cars, and don't recommend it to anyone I care about.
Feel free to put them on your cars NES hahahahahahahaha
kidding. I love like 12 of you.
It could, if you pick the right one. If it says "I love cops", they'll know you're not pretending to be a cop and are just butt kissing. Thing is, a lot of what I see seems to be suggesting they're cops, so don't mess with them.
I have one on the back window of my truck cap, because my buddy who is a chief had it on there when he gave the cap to me, when he changed trucks.
I didn't even notice it was on there for a good while, as I use the truck infrequently. But i really don't care, I left it on.
Had one of those Mass State Police stickers not the “troopers are your best protection” ones but apparently some super special sticker that Troopers give out to family I’m assuming to get out of tickets.
Anyways it was on a used car I bought from a friends of my father when I was a teenager. Said friends Son is/was a Sergeant with MSP. One day I’m driving home from the gym and I notice an unmarked cruiser ha been following me for a solid ten minutes. I pull up to my house and he whips into my driveway lights on and jumps out. Old timer trooper who looks like he should be retired starts yelling at me asking how I got that trooper because he doesn’t know any with my last name blah blah and how did I get that sticker. At this point my dad comes outside to find out what’s going on as I’m asking what sticker the trooper is talking about he points to it and I start laughing in disbelief that he is this mad and followed me for that long over a sticker. My dad tells the trooper to calm down and explains the back story etc. He points at the sticker and says get that fu**ing sticker off that car and he better never see it on there again etc and hops back in and drives off pissy. That sticker stayed on that car til the day I sold it to a junk yard.
My liberal douche brother-in-law told me he had one of these on his car about 10 years ago. At the time, he worked at DYS and got pulled over on the Pike doing about 20 over. He mentioned the sticker to the statie who was writing him up and actually said to him, "Hey, instead of the ticket, how about some professional courtesy?"
The cop laughed and handed him a hefty ticket instead. I got a laugh out of it too.
It is how old white men identify themselves in traffic to each other...
I put a blue line sticker on my car (right next to my NES oval). I did it when Black Lives Natters we’re making a stink about it. It was more to piss off the libs.
And that is exactly why I recommend not having one of those thin blue line stickers in your car...
Shoulda told him get the f*** off your lawn and slammed door in his face. f*** that loser. Should be behind bars or worse with that attitude.
No, that’s exactly why every person that owns a car should have one. We should buy by the case and slap them on every car in the Walmart parking lot lol
Whew, I'm glad I'm one of the 12.
I didn't see your post until I saw the thread without being logged in buddy. sorry bout dat. I've had you on ignore for like... ever. Probably the last time we'll chat <3
I've had the best luck avoiding tickets sporting my veteran's plates...the two times I got stopped, it was a warning with a conversation about what branch I was in and when/where did I serve. Maybe I was lucky.
The one put there for special treatment is the Mass Police Assn one. There is a policy of not tolerating this on civilian vehicles. A couple that bought a used car with one were forced to scrape it off at a traffic stop before they could leave. It is no accident that the instructions are to place it in a "stopping officer visible position", which is why they have a serial number and the department contact is asked to maintain a list of who was issued each one. Guns may not be universally registered but MPA immunity stickers are.
They look like this and the color changes each year.
