In the wee early morning hours today I was passing through a Cleveland suburb
when a police cruiser started following me. Sure enough he flipped on his lights
and pulled me over. He said the reason he pulled me over was because the
license plate wasn't illuminated. He checks my insurance card and takes my
license back to the cruiser.
The whole time he's running my license I'm thinking, "great, he's not going to
let this slide because I have a Steelers license plate holder on my car." He
comes back and jokingly says, "you know, I should give you a ticket just for
the Steelers license plate holder." I wasn't amused, and grumbled, "I know,
I kinda figured you'd say something like that."
Anyway, he let me go with a warning. I pulled into a parking lot about two blocks
away to let my brother-in-law out and he tapped my license plate. And of course,
the light came on.
I was glad I didn't get ticketed, but was still pissed off about the plate holder comment.
