About the Authors:
We are not police officers, retired or otherwise, or attorneys nor do we have a desire to be either. For the most part we consider both classes of people a necessary evil and choose to avoid each on a regular basis. We are everyday “schmos” who are sick of being lied to and seeing person after person plea to a violation when they had exonerating evidence in their hand and didn’t know how or when to use it.
Joseph is actually a science teacher with an interest in law and court procedures. Among the many things that he tells his students is that “knowledge is power”. In other words, if you know what laws apply and protect you before you get stopped by the police or confronted by a prosecutor then you won’t get taken advantage of and end up financially supporting the state and/or town due to false allegations.
Daniel is a professional driver who has more than 11 years experience in logistics, truck driving and more recently school bus driving. “While I realize the importance of rules and safety on the road, I also know the need to know when certain laws are impractical in some situations”
We firmly believe if more people were made aware of these laws and court procedures then it is possible, in many cases, to prove that a violation could not have occurred thereby saving you a lot of money and a lot of aggravation with the motor vehicle department and your insurance company.
Also, we absolutely hate and despise bureaucracy, red tape and any decisions made with either of these two as a basis. With that in mind we offer two more of our favorite phrases. “If you can’t beat them (city hall) join them then beat them”. Lastly, some advice when dealing with any politician or government official – “There is no more deeply rewarding, religious experience than cheatin’ on a cheater”.
