wow..i have had my lude for 3 months and have been pulled over 7 times. i don;t even drive fast! i got a ticket last thurs. for speeding...caught in a speed trap. this one road goes from 40 to 35 to 40 in about a 50ft space.

i have been pulled over for illegal exhaust...when i don't have one!

i have been pulled over for running a red light when i was stopped for at least 3 mins while cars passed(right on red).

and the other times were just dumb stuff...like reckless driving for doing a 2nd gear scratch.

cops can be total asses..no offense to fellow lude-cops out there.

the time i got the speeding ticket i was on my way to the dentist...when the cop gave me the ticket he said, "Wow, talk about a bad day, you get a ticket AND your teeth drilled on!"

i almost threw a hissy right there.

I always get pulled over but I have never had a speeding ticket in my Prelude.

Half the times I have been pulled over it was for no reason. How do I know? Well the officer would not give me a reasonable explanation and I never get tickets. They just BS me and give me the one liners and then tell me I get a warning. 99% of the time my girlfriend is in the car and they try to act like a badass in front of her.

Little do they know I am friends w/ the chief of Police and Special Ops, he's my neighbor and I used to work for the Police Association of Virginia ANNND my business partner and good friend is an ex officer.


I have only gotten an exhaust ticket and a no front license plate ticket in the last two years. I deserved them both too. Knock on wood.

Don't know if a Lude is a cop magnet but i've been tailed once and pulled over since he just thought that i might be a trouble maker or something. He gave me some sorry ass excuse about car prowlings in the area with a similar car to mine, yeah people doing car prowlings in with a car yeah. Ever since then I hate cops.

Dang, that is the most red Lude I've seen...

yeah I know that pic is a little out of hand. maybe that's why I got pulled over. I probably blinded the cop when I rolled by and made him spill his cup of joe and doughnut.

yes yes.. pulled over 3 times... in the past 4 months and i'm the sanest of my friends when it comes to driving. 1st time i was pulled over for chirping while entering the driveway of a parking lot (got me 20 minute lecture where i was searched, felt what it was like to be cuffed, and sat on the front of one of the cop car's metal bumper (the steel cage thing in front of their cars)while 2 cops, 2 patrol cars and their dog cussed at me about the runs and such (i have never been to a run in my entire life... which is a bit sad). thank god the dog didn't bite down on my license.. otherwise they would have towed the car (or so they claim), this was in milpitas. 2nd time was in fremont... a cop on a bike.. he gave me a speeding ticket (50 in a 35... its 2 lane with a divider.. with a caged aquaduct on the side of the road).. speed trap. he also got me for clear corners, no front license plate and was about to get me for my AEM CAI.. i was ticketed for stuff the previous owner installed (and didn't bother to sell the car with the stock parts). 3rd time i got pulled over was in newark when i was doing 40 in a 40. its just that i was so loud and quick getting up to speed (it was pretty late at night... 3 lanes... with like closed car dealers on both sides) that the cop was alarmed.. pulled a QUICK (hella quick) u-turn right on my tail and i slowed down and pulled over.. "w'sup speed racer, you like your car?" was his greeting... he let me go. thank god. i dont think he had radar on at the time because he was in the middle of the road. cool guy though... and i understand they're doing my job.. but damn.. this car is getting me in a lot of trouble... my friends think i'm the slowest driver of all of them.. however.. each time i was pulled over, i was wearing the same pair of pants.. green cargos.. they suggest i burn it.. but i'm afraid the ashes will somehow try and suffocate me or cling to everything i own and make everything unlucky.

I was coming back from a surfing trip down south and had surfboards on top of my car (my old accord) and got frisked atleast 5 times. The cop was really nice though and actually gave me a ticket for speeding but lessened the speed I was going by over 10 mph!! But he figured I had some weed or something since I surfed.


I keep in mind that profiling is part of their job and 95% of the time the police officer is right.

Car color seems to have something to do with it, I never get pulled over, my car is black. But when I had a red car, I got pulled over more often (and I haven't changed the way I drive). Oh, I forgot, I covered my car in radar absorbing materials that I sneaked out of Lockheed one night.

Ive been pulled over once and that was taking a turn at about 40 when the light was turning yellow,but the cop didnt give me a ticket though.Another thing about my car is that every cop in the Des Moines area know my car ( used to have Got Rice B!tch! on the back winshield). Dont anymore though.

Prelude a cop magnet!? Sure I have been tailed a couple times but never pulled over. Let me tell you about a cop magnet. 1994 Volvo 850 Turbo Wagon. Cop magnet, between my brother and I that car has accumulated 4 tickets and 3 other not ticketed stops in the last 6 months. We don't drive stupid either. No worries though, I've got connections. The car that totally sneaks under the radar is our 87 Acura Legend coupe. Stealth, I think that it got coated at the factory or something.

Yeah I hate having a red car. I get looks from EVERY police officer. Not only that I drive by a municipal/police station atleast a few times a day. I have learned that if you dont have tint on your car you get a little more respect.
